Your Reps

We know that our students have a lot on their plates. Alongside studying, university is also about developing self-knowledge by gaining new experiences, meeting new people and uncovering skills you never knew you had.

One easy way of getting there is via volunteering. At LUU, we have lots of volunteer opportunities to help enhance your skills and boost your CV. Most employers recognise the skills that can be gained through voluntary work experience – from organising an event to carrying out interviews and surveys or even interacting with customers on a daily basis. Stand out from the crowd and do good things during your time at Leeds.

Liberation Coordinators

As a Liberation Coordinator, you'll mobilise other students to highlight and further the needs of marginalised communities on campus. You will make a positive, student-led change by running campaigns, History Month events, putting forward ideas to our Better Forums and lobbying for services, provisions and equality on campus. Our LibCos this year have done some fantastic work, and this is a great chance to continue their legacy.

 

At LUU we have roles in the following categories; Black & Minority Ethnic, Disability, LGBTQ+ and Women. To become a Liberation Coordinator you must self-identify within the category you are applying for.

Community Reps

Our Community Reps at LUU are a huge part of what we do. They are the voice of students on a range of issues in the community, working with our partners and stakeholders. They make change through our democratic structures and through their own community projects. And they get plenty of opportunities to develop and gain new skills in the process.
