Have Your Say at Plymouth Marjon University through Staff Student Liaison Committees (SSLCs) and the Student Experience Council (SEC).
On this page you will find information on:
- What an SSLC is, what SEC is, and the difference between the two.
- How to raise issues at both.
- Paperwork from previous meetings.
Do you know where and how to raise different issues?
Student Reps are elected/volunteer at the start of the academic year to represent their course mates at Staff Student Liaison Committees (SSLCs) and the Student Experience Council (SEC). They are therefore expected to attend SSLCs for their programmes, as well as attending SEC as often as possible. Within SSLCs an issue relating to the course can be raised. If this is unable to be resolved at an SSLC or needs further action, it is then taken by the Student Reps to be raised at SEC. Ideally Student Reps should be proactive in asking their course mates for anything they want raised at an SSLC or SEC, however it is perfectly acceptable to approach/contact your Student Rep and ask them to raise an issue on your behalf. (A list of Student Reps can be found below.)

The Terms of Reference of SEC state:
SEC reports to Senate and provides feedback to the Students’ Union, to the student community generally and to the Senior Management Team.
