The SOAS liberation caucus is a student group advocating for the rights and interests of specific marginalised communities on campus, such as LGBTQ+ students or racial and ethnic minorities.
The SOAS liberation caucus is a student group advocating for the rights and interests of specific marginalised communities on campus, such as LGBTQ+ students or racial and ethnic minorities.

The liberation caucuses will meet at least twice a term, and they are there for you to build community, share your experiences and mobilise together on issues that matter to you. 

These caucuses will select a member to join the Executive Committee of the SU (where the Co-Presidents meet with caucus representatives and open-portfolio officers) alongside appointing individuals within the group to take a lead on convening the caucus' priorities.

The Liberation Caucuses are as follows:

  1. Black Students' Caucus
  2. Disabled Students' Caucus
  3. LGBTQ+ Students Caucus
  4. Trans* and Gender Identity Students Caucus
  5. Women Students Caucus
  6. Working Class Students Caucus

Caucus Delegates

Before our recent governance review SOAS SU had part-time officers, who were elected into posts representing specific demographics of the student body at SOAS (eg. Disability officer, International students officer).

These part-time officer roles have been reorganised into liberation caucuses, and open-portfolio officers. Each liberation caucus will select a member to represent the caucus on the executive committee (where the liberation delegates, open-portfolio officers, post graduate research representative and Co-Presidents come together.

The delegate will take the lead on delivering the group’s priorities/campaigns/initiatives, and will work closely with the Co-President of Equality and Liberation.

The executive committee will meet every two weeks, so if you'd like to become the delegate for your liberation caucus please bear in mind that attending these meetings regularly is necessary.
