What are Liberation Networks and how do I join?

Published by Beds SU

The purpose of Liberation Networks is to represent the diverse characteristics of our student membership. They exist to advance the representation of student communities that are widely acknowledged to experience or have experienced oppression, exclusion or disadvantage.

Our Liberation Networks lead and seek change within the University, the Union and the wider student experience for those that they represent.


Our current Liberation Networks

Our current Liberation Networks are: 

Students with Disabilities Network

Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Students’ Network

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Plus (LGBT+) Student’s Network


What do Liberation Networks do?

Liberations Networks work with the Union to build a Priority Campaign, so that the network can bring about positive change within the University, the Union and/or the wider student body.

The networks also hold social events to bring communities together.

Each Liberation Network will elect a Student Chair who will be in charge of running the network. They will work closely with the Union to ensure your voice is heard.
