These positions exist to champion, celebrate and create change for minority groups at LJMU!
The seven positions are:
BAME Students Officer
Trans and Non-Binary Students Officer
Postgrad Students Officer
International Students Officer
Disabled Students Officer
LGBTQA+ Students Officer
To stand for any of these roles you must self-identify as belonging to that group.
Previous students have done amazing things for their minority groups including lobbying LJMU to update trans' students names from their birth names to their chosen names, leading on equality and diversity campaigns across campus, organising events for Black History Month and working to diversify the curriculum at LJMU.
This is your opportunity to represent LJMU on a national scale as an NUS Delegate!
Err.. what's that?
The NUS is the National Union of Students. It's made up of 650 Students' Unions and approximately 7 million students.
Being a Delegate is essentially like being an MP for your University! You put yourself forwards for the position, get voted in by students, and represent the LJMU student body at the National Conference.
The NUS Conference will be held at the ACC in Liverpool, from 30 March - 2 April 2020. Here you will:
- Vote on key student issues
- Decide on the NUS leadership (including voting for the President of the NUS)
- Meet and network with 1000s of other students from across the UK - this is the biggest democratic student event in the world!
