Equality Champions

The Students' Union introduced Equality Champions in 2013/14. These are students who self-define into protected characteristics and minority groups, and act as ambassadors for their equality strands.

Our team of champions take a lead on liberation campaigns, organising events, arranging fundraisers, and liaising with the university, Staff Equality Champions and the Union to ensure that we have a vibrant and diverse culture at RGU, which is safe and free from discrimination and prejudice.

Applications are now open for Student Equality Champions for 2017/18

Could you be a representative for minority groups? Could you fight for changes to be made at RGU? Could you make life better for the diverse community at RGU? The Equality Champions work with the university and union to represent the views of these key groups of students.
