Equality Champions

Equality Champions are representative roles at RGU:Union where individuals who self-define into either a liberation group or group of underrepresented students on campus represent the issues they face.

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. They do this through using the Student Partnership Agreement to structure their work.


How do I get involved?

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.
