Campaigns

It is our mission to ensure all Aberystwyth students love student life and feel empowered.

The diversity of our student body means that there are a variety of challenges that some of our students face in everyday life.

We acknowledge the existence and impact of these barriers and help students run campaigns to combat these challenges. These focus on empowerment, education and creating genuine change.

Our campaigns are led first and foremost by students, supported by Full-Time and Volunteer Officers who are elected to represent and campaign on specific issues. 

Liberation

 

The liberation movement campaigns for equal rights and access for groups of people who face prejudice, inequality, exclusion, and barriers.

AberSU has elected Officers who collect feedback, organise events and campaign on behalf of students that self-identify within these groups:

  • Women
  • LGBTQ+
  • Disabled
  • Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic

Your Volunteer Officers are elected represent these groups and all self-identify within the group they represent. To find out who represents you click here.
