My Committees

Education Committees

This committee has oversight of the three Service Units based in the North-West region: Liverpool University Royal Naval Unit (LURNU); Liverpool University Officer Training Corps (LOTC); and Liverpool University Air Squadron (LUAS).

This group looks at which school leaving qualifications are allowed upon entry to the University. They generally base this around A-Levels, B-Tecs and their International equivalents.

This committee oversees the development and implementation of strategies, policies and frameworks designed to promote research at international and world-leading standards across all disciplines in the University.

Jamilia, an ex-Vice President, has collaborated with a university project group on researching the obstacles that face POC students, especially Black British students, and prevent them from progressing into PGR positions. We worked with the group to hold focus groups and produced the report that is going on to inform the next stage of the work.

Student Experience Committees

This committee forms the strategic relationship between the University and the Guild. It monitors and signs off the Guild’s reports. This committee acts as a forum to discuss university and Guild joint campaigns and activities.

This meeting gives an insight into the campus plan, building works and changes on campus, which have been revised since the pandemic. Campus accessibility is discussed and actioned here.

This committee plays a significant role in acting as channel for fostering inter-faith activity and sharing updates of each respective chaplain. There are four chaplains shared with John Moore’s University.

Liverpool Student Homes is a student accommodation service that is funded by University of Liverpool, John Moore’s University and Hope University. The group includes members from different universities who report on the service in their respective campuses. .

Our commitment to creating an environment that promotes sport and other healthy activity is set out in the University’s Active Campus 2026 strategy, approved by FSLT, and endorsed by the University Council in May 2022. By collaborating with colleagues across the institution, providing a wide variety of tailored programmes, investing in active spaces through campus design and infrastructure, by consistently promoting the value of an active culture and encouraging students and staff to take ownership of their own wellbeing, we can help build a healthier, happier, more successful community at the University of Liverpool.

The University Active Campus Board will strengthen the governance of sports and physical activity services and related investment. It will promote, support, and monitor the implementation of the Active Campus 2026 strategy, evaluate the success of programmes, projects and interventions, and track performance against key targets. It will keep sports related policy under review and aligned to help meet wider University objectives.

The University is undertaking a substantial project to look at data platforms (such as Liverpool life, a customer relationship management portal and attendance monitoring.) These three meetings bring together those projects and discuss tenders and any risks or implications.

The Guild has contributed direct student feedback on the Liverpool Life (student portal) working group to develop a service that meets the needs of all students.

This is a cross-organizational group that includes all the Universities and city partners to discuss city-wide safety campaigns.

Chloe, an ex-Deputy-President, worked with this group to reform the University’s Report and Support system. This resulted in the introduction of an annual review of the University’s sexual assault reporting system to ensure it is agile in responding to new forms and conditions of incidents.

In response to the spiking endemic at the start of the 21/22 academic year, ex-Vice-President Jamilia sought action at this committee to protect students. She produced the “Zero Tolerance” proposal which sought to update the Liverpool City Region Council’s Licensing Policy to tighten up health and safety training, incident reporting systems and expand considerations to make venues responsible for protecting customers from a wider range of issues such as racism and other forms of hate crime, as well as gender based and sexual violence. The proposal was adopted by Student Safety as part of their package of work and has been taken to a senior city safety committee, CitySafe JAG. Work is ongoing.

International Committees

This group has oversight of study abroad students including the Year in China at XJTLU. The group focuses on issues such as grade conversions, module changes, the student experience and well-being, and quality of teaching.

Corporate Committees

Facilities, Residential & Commercial Services (FRCS) is responsible for planning the capital development of the University estate and managing the maintenance of the University’s built environment. The Liverpool Guild of Students (LGoS) occupies premises on the estate and is a key stakeholder. FRCS considers future development needs in relation to LGoS activity and to manage on-going maintenance issues.

This committee considers how to make best use of the University’s heritage collections and cultural activities in order to benefit the University’s teaching and research activities and the University’s engagement with the Liverpool City Region and its cultural life. Recently, this policy has been focused on Liverpool’s colonial and imperialist past.

Senate is one of the highest decision-making bodies at the University and is responsible for promoting research, promoting and regulating learning and teaching, and for maintaining the quality of standards of the University’s academic provision.

The Guild’s officers, along with three elected Student Reps, work throughout each academic year to ensure that student voice is at the heart of the decisions made by Senate about/for the University.
