The constitution is the primary governing document of the ESS and outlines the structure and regulations of the society.   Changes to the constitution require student wide referendums.  The policy manuals outline specific policy that is followed by the society.  Changes to the policy manual can be done at ESS meetings and require a 2/3 council vote.  Each executive is responsible for managing their mandate according to these documents, and are held accountable as such. The latest version of the constitution, policy manuals, and ToR’s can be found below:
