The Commemorative Days Committee formulates and drives the University’s programme of commemorative celebrations. The four key events we celebrate are:

  • International Women’s Day
  • LGBTQ+ Pride
  • Black History month
  • Disability Awareness month

The committee also strive to recognise other key inclusion dates throughout the year and meet monthly to plan out activity.

There is representation from teams across the University on committee, including the:

  • Culture and Inclusion Team
  • Students’ Union
  • Communications team
  • Student Support and Safeguarding team
  • Library

Other individuals with relevant interests will be invited to join the committee for the planning of specific commemoration events to enhance expertise. For example: the Chair of aFlame Disability Staff and PGR network, Kaleidoscope LGBTQ+ network, People of Colour network, Professional Services Women’s Leadership Network.
