Liberation Campaign Committees 2018/19

 

The Liberation Campaign Committees sit within the Students’ Association’s wider Liberation Campaigns. Each Liberation Campaign (Black and Minority Ethnic, Disabled Students’, LGBT+ and Women) will have a Committee of three volunteer student members. These Committees will sit under the elected Liberation Officers and will have the following responsibilities:

 

  • Shaping the direction of the Liberation Campaign - Working with the Liberation Officers to identify potential areas of work and decide on the Campaigns’ priorities

  •  

  • Supporting the Liberation Officers in delivery of events and campaigns - Collaborating with other Committee Members and the Liberation Officers to run events and campaigns

  •  

  • Holding the elected Liberation Officers to account - Ensuring the Liberation Officers are fulfilling their role and reflecting the needs of self-defining students

 

Committee Members will be selected by internal elections within the Liberation Campaigns in which all self-defining students are eligible to vote (unlike in the main Students’ Association elections you do not need to self-define via the Students’ Association website).

 

 

 

Based on feedback from our 2017/18 Liberation Officers and Liberation Campaign Committee Members, we are removing the separate Welfare, Events and Campaigns roles. Instead, each Committee will be made up of three open places.

 

While we want students who sit on these Committees to make the most of the roles, we also recognise that they are voluntary positions and so they are very flexible in terms of time commitment and will receive a high level of support from both the Liberation Officers and relevant Students’ Association staff. Our hope is that these roles will act as an opportunity for interested students to come more involved in the Liberation Campaigns, gaining valuable skills and experience for the future.
