LIBERATE MY DEGREE CAMPAIGN

Our officers, Ebun and Amy have been researching about nationwide university curriculums and flaws within them. From this, they are campaigning to liberate your curriculum and make it inclusive and representative for all. Find out more about their steps to doing this and help out here.

OUR AIMS

  • To work to reduce the attainment gap at the University of Brighton that currently means students of black or minority ethnicities are 22% less likely to achieve a 2:1 or 1st class degree, compared to white students who enter with the same or equivalent academic qualifications.
  • To empower students across all schools to comment and critique where they feel their curriculum does not reflect issues of diversity, equality and
  • To inform students of the work being carried out by their elected Students’ Union officers, University staff and the National Union of Students to issues relevant to decolonising the curriculum.
