How to Stay Within the Rules
Although running a student group is mainly about having fun, it's also important that you make sure you follows the rules and regulations that apply to you.
University discipline regulations apply to you as a student from the time you register to the time you leave University.
SUSU disciplinary procedure also applies to you whenever you're carrying out a student group activity of any sort (whether it's an organised trip, a meeting or a social).
All student groups and their members must also abide by the Student Groups Code of Conduct. Student groups should ensure that their members are familiar with this code of conduct, although it is the responsibility of the individual to ensure that they have read the document.
It's important to remember that the committee members can be held liable by the Union for activities that occur at a student group event. You are therefore under a duty to do your best to prevent people from breaking the rules.
If you have any questions at all about any aspect of the disciplinary rules and procedures, please email the Democracy Team (firstname.lastname@example.org)
