The University of Lincoln Students’ Union plans to scrap its student council at an All Students’ Meeting tonight.
Tonight will see student representatives from all corners of the university world – academic, welfare, community, sports, and societies – come together to vote on and make decisions.
Monday night’s student council saw its representatives vote to co-opt two new community reps. Each representative will have a vote on Student Council for the rest of the academic year to represent the main student-inhabited areas of the city.
