Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

This is our student hub for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion work at Greenwich Students' Union. This includes Student Communities that we run for particular student groups.

The three core aims of this work are to:

Create safe spaces for all our members


Run campaigns to raise awareness



Educate the community to reduce oppression

GSU is committed to reducing the barriers our members face both inside and outside their university experience. Developing you to talk about systemic discrimination and oppression and recognise privilege and internal bias.

What is Liberation?

Liberation at Greenwich Students' Union is a dedicated space to support students from under-represented groups and groups that experience barriers to engagement whilst they are at University. This is to ensure that the right support is in place to enable all students to thrive at University, alongside offering a network of support when these groups of students need it most

GSU has six elected student Liberation Chairs, who oversee our 6 liberation groups, representing Women, LGBTQ+ students, Disabled students, Students of Colour, Mature students and Commuter Students. The liberation groups represent your opportunity to have your voice heard if you identify with any of these identities. You can meet throughout the year to discuss campaigning on issues affecting these students, promote the work of student-led societies with specific liberation objectives, and seek to educate students on how different issues affect students with different identities.
