A new section has been added to the charter, to deal with the new status of the MISU Office Account.

MISU Representation
Mary Immaculate Student Union is currently represented by the MISU Office account. We can’t have anybody and everybody coming on here claiming to be representatives of the SU, be this a welfare or a societies officer. As a result, any poster claiming to post on behalf of the Student Union will be in breach of this charter. This is the case even if you are genuinely who you claim to be. If an exec chooses to post through the MISU Office account, they should state this in their post. It would be best if the MISU account didn’t appear to have multiple personalities.

MISU Office represents, you guessed it, the MISU Office. Not the college or its authorities. Don’t take anything they say to be the official college management line (though most if not all the time it will be the same). Neither should whoever is posting using the MISU Office account purport to represent the college on any issue.

While certain individual cases might be dealt with by the MISU here, please be aware that any potentially libellous or inappropriate issues may have to be deleted. This is a means of contacting the MISU anonymously, but this does not give you free reign to post whatever you like. That’s for the protection of the site – not the protection of the college or the SU from your views.

This forum is pretty unique in having an official SU representation, so this is under review. Don’t abuse the privilege!


If you have any opinions or comments, I'd appreciate them here!

Thanks spurious. I'd particularly appreciate feedback or buy-in from the SU, if they're reading.

We are on board with this. This will also be made clear to the MISU Executive and how this account works and where they stand in terms of responding and the additional T&Cs associated with a rep account.

Where needed we will specify if someone in particular is responding, for example if the Vice President/Academic is responding to academic queries.

As stated we obviously do not represent the views of the college. We are the representative body of the students and represent those views, which can include points put forward here. We obviously also respond to queries to the best of our ability based on the facts and information available to us.

We welcome the official representative account and hopefully it all pans out ok.
