David (UG Education) and Khadija (BAME Network Chair) set up several ‘Decolonising Working Groups’ in schools and departments across the university. These groups will ensure that students are driving changes in decolonising curriculums in all disciplines. They also successfully made changes to the unit approval and review process to ensure that all teaching staff regularly engage with the decolonisation project.
In June 2021 we ran Committee Fest - our annual training and development festival for incoming student leaders. This year we: Ran 29 virtual training events, covering everything from finance to events, and campaigns to social media. Trained 251 incoming student leaders, with students attending on average 2+ events each. Worked to develop leaders from 108 different student groups.
