FOREWORD Part II of the Education Act 1994 imposes obligations on all institutions in the Higher Education Sector concerning Students’ Unions. It gives these institutions responsibility for ensuring that students have the right to opt out of union membership and that provision is made for a code of practice and a complaints procedure. The latter have been incorporated as appendices to this Constitution. Institutions are also charged under the Act with ensuring that student unions manage their financial affairs in a proper manner and that they do not engage in political activity. It is considered that this Constitution fulfils all these obligations and that it will provide Writtle College Students’ Union with an adequate framework within which to conduct its affairs. The original constitution approved by the Board of Governors on 8 June 1995. This has subsequently been updated and approved by the Board of Governors on: 22 January 1998 4 June 1999 22 June 2001 September 2008 January 2011 December 2011
