The Democratic Standards Committee:

The DSC includes the Chair of Student Council, the Union Affairs Officer and five students elected at the first Student Council of the year. It is responsible for ensuring that Bristol SU's structures and democracy are accessible, fair and productive for all students. The DSC also sets the agenda for each Student Council meeting, and the Annual Members' Meeting, deciding which items should be discussed, how, and in what order. When necessary, the DSC may determine that a formal motion is unnecessary, or an item is better discussed by a different group - at a liberation forum, for example, or via an all-student referenda.
