Structural Analysis of Pachhunga University College Students’ Union

ABSTRACT

The Students’ Union, (S.U.) a body established to help promote the welfare of students and a body which is considered to be divorced from political influences of outside forces have at times succumbed to its manipulative aura. Consisting of a very large mobilisable population has often served as a catalyst for various social movements. This union body also provides an important platform for nurturing political consciousness and political education. It also serves as a tool for promoting democracy at the grass-root level where students learn the art of self-government. Occupation of leadership position in the union help shape students to become eminent politicians as shown in the case of Pachhunga University College (PUC). This paper will be a micro study of the Pachhunga University College Students’ Union (PUCSU). It will also be an analysis of the structure and functions of the Union.
