Democratic Procedures Committee
What is the DPC?
The Democratic Procedures Committee's (DPC) main role is to make sure Student Council operates in-line with the bye-laws of the Union, and to generally review and keep an eye on the governance of the Union.
Hi, I am Jamie. I am studying Adult Nursing. I have wanted to be a nurse for a long time so this is very exciting for me. I am mostly looking forward to go on placements. In my spare time I enjoy working on my personal fitness, long walks and seeing family and friends.
This year I will be taking on the role as DPC for this year. I will be ensuring that all student union meetings follow the rules and runs smoothly. I am sure I will be able to use these skills I learn here further in my career as a nurse.
Hi! My names Hollie, I’m a first year Psychology and Criminology student. I’m foremost a mum to my twins, and love the challenge they bring, along side the challenge of studying at the University of Suffolk (further, in a global pandemic!). In my free time, I love to spend time being silly, doing crafts or baking, and watching anything crime related!
I’m really excited to be a DPC member this year, another new challenge for me, ensuring all stuff council is running smoothly and within the appropriate guidelines and bye-laws. I look forward to learning more about the role and learning as I go, being as involved as I can in my experience at UoS,with the hope to transfer my skills into my career one day.
Hi, I am Matthew. I am a 1st year Adult Nursing student. I have been working in healthcare for quite a while and being able to take the next step to becoming a nurse means the world to me. I am mostly looking forward to go on placements and learning some new skills.
This year I will be taking on the role as DPC. I will be ensuring that all student union meetings follow the rules and runs smoothly. I am sure the skills that I will be learning in this role will enable me to become a better nurse in the future.
Hi, I'm Emily, I study Early years and Primary Education Studies (EPES). I come from a tiny little village in Lincolnshire, so all this uni stuff was very daunting to begin with. I enjoy cooking in my spare time as well as playing video games.
I went for the role of DPC to push myself out of my comfort zone, and my passion for law pushed me even further to pursue it. And now I'm here, part of the committee to make sure that all our Students' Union meetings follow the rules. I try to be a friendly face at the university, so if you see me, feel free to say hello.
Hi, I'm Chris. I am currently studying for a PhD in Business Management and I also volunteer as the Postgraduate Officer. I have been a Course Representative twice in the past with this being my third year working with the SU as the PG Officer. This has provided me with experience and a good degree of familiarity of the procedures to which Council is required to operate by, and therefore I will be able to make sure that these procedures are being followed. I am keen to help review and make improvements to the democratic procedures.
