When ideas are passed through Change It, they become Actions, Policies or Campaigns. If more information is needed about an idea, it might be actioned for more Research (we'll look at it again next term). If it’s a particularly big idea, it might go to a referendum.

You can visit the campaigns page to find out what campaigns RUSU is currently running, and the policies page to find out what policies are currently in place.
