Governance

The Electoral Commission runs Union elections and interprets our Constitution. The Oversight Commission audits officers to ensure their duties are carried out and they not violate policy or the Constitution. They also interpret and maintain Union policy.

The chair of the Electoral Commission also acts as the Chair of Council, and the chair of the Oversight Commission acts as the Secretary to Council. Together, the Commissions maintain and enforce Union governance while keeping things running smoothly.

Chair of Council

Emma Gallagher - she/her

The Electoral Commission (EC) runs all SU Councils as well as any election or referenda held by the Students’ Union, ensuring clarity and transparency. As such, no member of the EC may hold another position in the Union, although the Chair of the EC is also the Chair of Council.

Faculty Convenors

Faculty Convenors are the primary representatives of their respective academic faculties. They sit on their faculty executive committee with heads of schools, and on the College's highest academic decision making body, University Council. They also chair their respective Faculty Assembly, which hears local issues from class reps and school convenors — local issues can be anything. Can't access the necessary course materials? There's a broken seat or water fountain in your building? You're not being supported on placement? Reach out to your Faculty Convenor!

STEM Convenor

Seán Lysaght (he/him)

I work with the school convenors and class reps to resolve any problems that STEM students may have. I also represent all STEM students on several committees, including the University Council, and chair the STEM Faculty Assembly. A large part of the role is helping students one-on-one.

Part Time Officers

At UF meetings we report on our work, draft Council motions/discussion items, and resolve any issues with how TCDSU is running. Part-time officers exist so that students with an interest in a particular area can channel that energy into intersectional campaigns, ensuring that the Union is working for everyone who needs it!
