Meetings, motions and Constitution

The St Anne’s MCR is run by an annually elected group of students (the MCR Committee), financed by the college, and under the guidelines set out in its Constitution.

MCR Meetings

The Committee runs regular MCR meetings during term time. The General Meetings usually take place 2-3 times a term, and are a good opportunity to discuss life in College, how to spend the MCR’s budget a how the MCR should be run. All MCR members (not just the Committee) are invited and may vote on issues discussed, and everyone has the opportunity to put forward suggestions, proposals, and to give feedback.
