What will you lead in?
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 voluntary 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.

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.
Liberation Co-ordinators are union volunteers and activists who run campaigns and assist students in running campaigns related to liberation groups. LUU is great at many things, but it could be better regarding political activism and campaigning. Liberation Co-ordinators are designed to fill this gap – they should use their knowledge and experience around campaigning and liberation to support students who wish to run their own campaigns, as well as advocating for the rights of those students. They must self-define as part of the liberation group that they campaign for.
We have liberation co-ordinators for four groups; Black and Minority Ethnic (BME), LGBT+, Women, and Disabled students.
There can be up to three for each group.
- One LGBT+ Liberation Co-ordinator should be reserved for a student who identifies as trans.
- One BME Liberation Co-ordinator should be reserved for a student who identifies as a woman.
- One Women’s Liberation Co-ordinator should be reserved for a student who identifies as BME.
- The Disability Liberation Co-ordinators have no restrictions and are open for all students who identify as disabled/having a disability, including hidden illnesses.
