Our Liberation Groups are for students who face oppression and discrimination and are often underrepresented and disadvantaged during their time at University, whether in their education or in wider society. The Liberation Groups have been established not only to recognise where students may need further support, but to celebrate and showcase the fantastic work by and about students who are disabled, woman, black and LGBTQ+.
At Middlesex University, we have communities for women students, disabled students, black students (of African, Arab, Asian and Caribbean heritage) and LGBTQ+ students (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, +). Each Liberation Group is led by an elected student committee who self-identify into that specific group. Throughout the year these groups meet regularly to network and socialise, share experiences, discuss life at Middlesex, and plan campaigns. We recognize that with the current climate of the world facing a nation wide pandemic, liberation groups feel more isolated than ever. In light of this, we curated a dynamic system to allow our students to meet like-minded people remotely and safely - from Zoom meet ups, game & quiz nights, to online campaigns & activism, and many more.
To join and lead one of the MDXSU Liberation Group, you must self-identify into that specific group - you may define into more than one! If you do not self-identify into any of Liberation Groups you can still get involved with events, actions and socials as an ally!
