Liberation Groups

Part-time Liberation Officers are elected by students to represent students who self-identify as belonging to one or more of 4 liberation groups - Women students, BAME students, LGTBQ+ students and students with disabilities. We use the term ‘liberation’ because we believe that working on these issues is about liberation – freedom from the discrimination and oppression people face because of their identities.

Part-time Liberation Officers undertake their roles alongside their studies on a voluntary basis in order to represent the rights of students from underrepresented and marginalised groups. This ensures that the Students’ Union and the University takes the views and needs of the students they represent into account and undertaking projects and campaigns to support and promote the rights of students belonging to liberation groups. They are also responsible for helping to bring together students who self-identify as belonging to a liberation group or groups together via Liberation Forums.

Liberation Forums are self-organising groups who come together to exchange ideas and views on particular issues that are relevant to that group. They can meet physically (where possible), organise and meet online (e.g. via Microsoft Teams) or a combination of both. Liberation Forums are supported by the Part-time Liberation Officer for that group, but they themselves decide what their priorities will be. This could involve campaigning on an issue affecting students who belong to that liberation group, undertaking representative work in partnership with an elected officer/the elected officer team or organising socials and peer support networks. It's entirely up to each forum what they decide to focus on.


At LMSU we have 4 forums representing each of the 4 liberation groups:

  • Women’s Forum
  • LGBTQ+ Forum
  • Disabled students Forum
  • BAME students Forum

    Each forum is represented by their own elected part-time officers, to find out more about them and contact them, please click on their profiles below or visit our Student Groups page and browse 'Liberation Forums':
