In 2018 JMSU introduced a new role to help champion minority groups of students at LJMU. Known then as Equality Rep, six students represented underrepresented areas: LGBT, Trans and Non-binary, International, Women, Disabled and BAME. These students alongside their studies and other commitments achieved incredible things for LJMU students and their minority groups.
Following this success in 2019, these roles were developed into Part-Time Officers with an addition to the team with the Postgraduate Students Officer. Once again, this team of students has achieved so much for their communities, they have lobbied for change to make the student experience better for their minority groups. When COIVD struck, the Part-Time Officers were still there championing for change for their communities and offering support for students.
This year 2020 we are excited to be adding another role to the team with the Multi-Faith Officer. We know this team of eight students will continue to champion for change for their communities and celebrate equality at LJMU. This year’s cohort will be taking on new challenges as COVID continues to impact on the student experience, they will be leading the way in representing the issues that face their minority groups by chairing our up-coming Student Networks.
We are so proud of what all our Equality Reps and Part-Time Officers have achieved since 2018, here are just SOME of the many wonderful things they have done!
