All societies have a 'Terms of Reference' which defines their objectives, the Exec roles and responsibilities and ensures the society is operating within the Students' Union's policy. When your society was first created your exec will have written a Terms of Reference.


This exists to make sure your group operates within the Students' Union's constitution and outlines the society's aims and objectives. It should also be a document that allows your group to develop and grow. Each year we ask you to resubmit your Terms of Reference through the re-affiliation process so that we can make sure your group is still acting within the Students' Union's guidelines as well as allowing us to keep a record on our systems. 


To amend your Terms of Reference please send us an email at help@lancastersu.co.uk. so that we can update our systems. If you aren’t able to find your existing constitution you can use our Terms of Reference which covers all groups.
