SUPRA’s governance is formalised through a number of regulations, which are kept here for transparency and accessibility. All policy documents are drafted by the Policy Committee and ratified by the SUPRA Council.
SUPRA Constitution Ratified by University of Sydney Senate: December 2014.
The Constitution is the document governing SUPRA’s operations. It gives scope to the actions of the SUPRA Council and in many cases defines not only what we should be doing but how we should be doing it. The Constitution can only be modified at an Annual General Meeting (AGM) or Emergency General Meeting (EGM) and there must be a two-thirds majority of SUPRA members present in order to do so. However, changing SUPRA’s Constitution does not end there. SUPRA is constituted through a resolution of the University Senate (the highest decision-making body of the University of Sydney) and therefore the Senate must ratify any changes to our Constitution.
