Your Ideas

Ideas

 

All good ideas start with a conversation 
 

This year, we are launching a new project that will allow you to create real change in your university. We know that there are some great things about Anglia Ruskin that you probably want to see more of, but also some areas that need improving or changing. This is your platform to do this.

So, how does it work?

1. First of all, submit your idea (make sure you're logged in, scroll down this page and click 'New Idea')

2. Get your mates or people on your course to give your idea the thumbs up

3. Once you have just 25 likes or thumbs up, your idea is automatically transformed into a Big Idea

4. All Big Ideas are then taken to your Executive Officer Team to work out the best way forward

5. As long as your idea is something the Students’ Union is able to work with (we can’t help you get free McDonalds every Monday, for example), and depending on its complexity (or controversy, we do like a bit controversy…) it is then taken to one of the following groups:

- Executive Committee
- The Ideas Forum
- A Student Members meeting 

6. Providing it is not something that has already been done before, negatively affects other students or staff, or is simply just too outrageous, then we will get in touch with you to figure out what our next steps will be together

7. We will then put the idea into action and regularly monitor its progress and keep everyone updated as regularly as we can

 

It might be that your idea should become a Students’ Union policy. If a policy is passed at Student Council or an All Student Meeting we are mandated to work by it. If this is the case, don’t worry, we will help you put that together.

So, what are you waiting for? Get submitting ideas and get liking any others that you think are important!
