The Student Union Council (SUC) is the peak decision-making body of the RMIT University Student Union (RUSU). They have the same types of duties and legal responsibilities as the Board of an organisation or company and the SUC members receive specific training and professional support to help them fulfil their legal and financial responsibilities.
The SUC is where your 28 elected representatives decide on events, activities, services, and campaigns to provide for students at RMIT. The SUC also makes the decisions about how RUSU runs as an organisation. RUSU is truely a 100% student run organisation.
SUC meetings happen monthly, with additional special meetings held as required. The dates for the current Student Union Council are included in the table below. Unless otherwise posted, SUC meetings start at 6pm.
Pre-Covid the SUC meeting have traditionally been held at one of the RUSU run meeting rooms, however where Covid restrictions are in place meetings are online.
Any RMIT student is able to attend meetings of the SUC. Like any group organising an event, RUSU needs advance RSVPs so we can plan appropriately.
To notify RUSU that you wish to attend an SUC meeting you simply need to email the RUSU General Secretary at least 24 hours in advance of the meetings start time at firstname.lastname@example.org. Advance notice is required to allow RUSU to manage any logistics. E.g. on-campus meeting rooms have strict capacity limits (which are even more important that ever with Covid rules) and pre-registration at on-campus events is also a requirement of RMIT Covid Safety plans.
The attendance of your elected representatives at these meetings is recorded below.
|P||Present at meeting|
|AP||Absent with apology|
|LQ||Left during the proceedings of meeting causing the meeting to lose quorum*|
|NA||There has been a subsequent change of the RUSU representative and therefore these dates are not applicable to the stated rep.|
*Quorum is the minimum numbers of people needed for a meeting to continue and make decisions. If someone leaves mid-meeting and causes a meeting to have to end early because they have lost quorum this section will be labelled LQ and be shaded red).
