The University of Leicester has a hugely diverse student body whose voice needs to be heard. We understand that every students experiences University in a different way, and that our students have a range of diverse needs.
Equality and Liberation Champions (ELCs), represent the needs and views of students who are frequently underrepresented in the curriculum, social activities and other aspects of University life. They work with our Students' Union staff to represent, engage and help to improve the experience of students from a liberation background i.e. BAME, Women, LGBT+, Trans and Non-binary and Accesibility. Together, we aim to create an inclusive, decolonised and accessible curriculum and campus.
Last year, your Champions were involved in a range of fantastic events across campus, including Black History Month, LGBT+ inclusion, and Inclusivity Fortnight. We are now looking to recruit this year's champions, to apply complete an application form by Monday 2 September. For more information on the role click here or alternatively get in touch with Tony Magaia. our Equality and Liberation Officer.
Your ELCs are here for you, so if you have any concerns regarding race, accessibility, gender, sexuality, equality and diversity, you can speak with them directly either in person, or via email. They will be able to raise concerns on your behalf and provide signposting, to help you to get the support you need.
If want to find out more about Equality and Liberation Champions or have any questions, please email Tony Magaia.
