Why should a UST student care about the Union Council?
科大學生為何應關注評議會事務?


The Union Council concerns not just the four statutory bodies of the Union; all student societies affiliated to HKUSTSU are under the auspices of the Council, and the general welfare of all HKUST students depends on the sound operation of the Union as a whole.

Therefore, we believe that each and every member of the Union should care about Council affairs. Members may participate in Council affairs through the following ways:

評議會是科大學生的議會,其決策不獨影響學生會四大中央架構,其職能亦包括監督所有學生會屬會,而同學的福利和權益本身亦與學生會的運作息息相關,是以一般會員皆應關注評議會事務。會員可通過下列途徑參與評議會事務:

 Coun_Parti_1 Stand for the seats of Popularly Elected Councilors in the Union Annual Elections
循學生會周年大選參選成為普選評議員
 Coun_Parti_4 Attend Council meetings as observers (all SU Full Members are eligible to observe Council meetings)
