Disability History Month aims to explore intersectionality, disability activism, and challenge misconceptions. Disabled people make up a fifth of the population of the UK. And yet they are still the largest minority which faces discrimination in this country.

Awarding Gap

The Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Awarding Gap is the difference between BAME and White students getting a ‘good degree’ (1st or 2:1). Greenwich Students’ Union (GSU) believes that the Awarding Gap isn’t due to the academic ability of BAME students but due to the structural imbalances and systemic failures within Higher Education. GSU believes that everyone should have the chance to benefit from Higher Education if they choose to.

Liberation Networks

Liberation at GSU comes in many forms however the three core aims of this work are to create safe spaces, run campaigns, and educate the community in order to reduce oppression. 
GSU is committed to reducing the barriers faced by our members both inside and outside their university experience. Developing you to talk about systemic discrimination and oppression as well as recognise privilege and internal bias.
