Constitution & Bylaws

The constitution and bylaws are two of the governing documents of the Students’ Union. The constitution is the Memorial University of Newfoundland Students’ Union Act (1968), which incorporates the MUNSU Board of Directors as the official representation of undergraduate students at Memorial’s St. John’s campus. This Act is provincial legislation. The bylaws state the governing and operational rules of MUNSU: when and how meetings are scheduled, how the Board of Directors is structured, and how decisions are made.

During the Spring and Fall 2013 semesters, the MUNSU bylaws underwent extensive review. The process and a highlight of these changes is given here: Membership Advisory – Bylaws 2013. The changes to the bylaws came into effect 1 January 2014. The amended bylaws can be downloaded here: MUNSU Bylaws – Amended 2013.


MUNSU’s policies define its positions, procedures, and election regulations. Find the most recent edition of the Policies Manual here: MUNSU Policy Manual – Updated November 2014.
