The Welfare and Liberation Officer works to make sure the University and wider world are inclusive and accessible to all. Take the lead on making LSE a safe, fair, and positive place to learn and to live!
As Welfare and Liberation Officer you will be one of LSESU’s full-time, paid Sabbatical Officers. The Sabbatical Officers represent all students at LSE and lead on major campaigns, strategic developments, projects and events.
The Welfare and Liberation Officer leads on initiatives that advance and support student welfare, particularly for those marginalised within their education experience and across wider society.
You will undergo negotiations with the School to improve issues such as off-campus housing support and the cost of living crisis; student wellbeing; equality and diversity issues; and access to higher education. You will work closely with the Part-Time Officers elected to represent marginalised groups, supporting them with their campaigns and projects.
You will sit on working groups concerning communities and student wellbeing, including the EDI Advisory Board, the Harassment and Safeguarding Forum and the Residences User Group.
All Sabbatical Officers are also members of the Trustee Board, which has the ultimate legal and financial responsibility for the Students’ Union, and the Executive Committee which is responsible for defending the rights of student members and campaigning on issues affecting them.
What would I be responsible for?
- Direct the Union’s work on the welfare of members
- Direct the Union’s work on issues relating to members’ local, regional, national and international communities
- Direct the Union’s work on citizenship and wider societal issues
- Direct the Union’s work on developing good campus relations
However, as with all elected roles, you will have a lot of freedom over the projects you choose to work on.
