uea(su) strives to champion and defend students of all identities, backgrounds and communities to shape and lead the SU. These liberation groups are women+ (non-binary and women students), BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) people, LGBT+ people and people with disabilities. We also defend the rights of international students and mature students.
Each group has its own democratic forum to ensure their members’ voices are heard. In order to access this, students need to answer the ‘self-defined’ questions. Self-defined questions indicate which liberation groups a student belong to. This information is only used to determine eligibility to vote in liberation elections and receive related emails.
If you are a candidate in an election and wish to access support this area contains many answers.
