AGM 2020

This is usually done at an open meeting. However due to the Covid 19 lockdown that is not possible this year. Therefore we have decided to give you the same opportunity on line via a Zoom meeting . We are asking you to approve various documents which you can read in the links below.

Returning Back to University:

I am in the vulnerable category or am anxious about returning back to University. What support is there for me?

If you are in a vulnerable category or you are particularly anxious about attending University at the start of the new term, you should complete the task that has been sent to your SRM. A member of the Student Development and Wellbeing team will then contact you to discuss your individual circumstances.

Will I be able to move about the campus safely?

All corridors and spaces have been mapped by the estates team and floors will be marked with direction arrows and spacing marks for queuing.

What will the university do if there is a confirmed case on campus?

The University will identify all close contacts of the individual in question and require them to leave campus/remain in their hall of residence for 14 days quarantine or until they can provide evidence of a negative test result.

Will I return to study on campus?

We are going to start the term in a hybrid model of teaching where, for every student, some teaching is online and some is face to face. The University have reorganised every classroom so that the maximum number of students timetabled in that space allows for appropriate social distancing. They have also put hand sanitiser and desk cleaning equipment in every classroom.

Where can I find more information on the University’s health and safety approach to Covid-19?

Black History Month 2020 Statement

Hi all, I’m Sally, your Vice President of Welfare & Community, I am extremely proud to be announcing the start of this year’s Black History Month at Hope Students’ Union. In the UK, Black History Month runs through October each year. The main focus of this month is raising awareness and celebrating Black History, culture, and aims to empower and represent BME people.

2020 marks an important year in regards to the worldwide Black Lives Matter movement (BLM). This was a great time to see the world unite as a community to fight injustice. The root of change for the future starts with education in schools, colleges and universities. As a committed advocate, these concerns are a priority to me as I’m sure they are for you. It is important we keep the momentum going, and as part of my campaign, I want to make this a year full of recurring activities.

This year Hope SU have organised a wide range of exciting events which will be focussing on recognising Black excellence as well as empowering Black voices and promoting anti-racism whilst tackling mental health. To make this year successful, I encourage all students and staff to be proactive. Make sure you stay tuned to our socials (@liverpoolhopesu) as there will be further announcements in the upcoming weeks.

If you’re a BLM activist, then we want to hear your voice. This is an open call for students to get expressive and share with us short essays, poetry or art. Email me submissions at vpreswelfare@hope.ac.uk before the deadline of 30th of October and you could be in with the chance of winning a cash prize.

Please click here for our BHM reading list. This year we have included a lot of anti-racist literature & books about decolonizing the university.

In solidarity,

Sally Wills (She/Her)
Vice President Welfare & Community 
Liverpool Hope Students’ Union
