The Union of Kingston Students will be debating and voting on all the motions that were not voted on at the first big student meeting due to a lack of time.

The second big student meeting (EGM) was called by Daisy Du Toit, Penrhyn Road and Union Development Officer, to maintain student democracy shortly after the first meeting could not cover all the proposed motions.

Proposed motions include one to introduce consent classes to Kingston University and another to create a role for a student director who would work with the elected campus officers while holding them to account.

If a motion is passed by the students it will become union policy for the next three years.

Motions passed at the previous big student meeting included one for protecting international students post-Brexit, another urging a boycott of the National Student Survey and making the university more LGBT inclusive.

This meeting is to take place on the 9th March at 4.30pm PRJG0001. All students are welcome to attend and vote.
