"Moving forward, Solent will continue in its commitment to be a fair, diverse and cohesive University that challenges and tackles social inequality."

 
What does #BlackLivesMatter mean?
 
 

Solent Students' Union is committed to the equal and fair representation of all of our members. As a democratically led organisation, we empower our members to make the decisions about how they are represented themselves through yearly elections. While our Sabbatical Officers have broad remits, which encompass all Students at Solent University, there are various voluntary Student Officer Positions that focus on under-represented groups. Some of these positions include:

  • BME Officer
  • LGBT+ Officer
  • Women's Officer
  • Disabilities Officer

...among many more. See the full list of Officers here.

 

  1. Bill Acharjee, Solent Research Governance Officer and Southampton District Black Members Officer: “For any members of our community feeling angry, sad, scared or frustrated, we are here to support you. Please get in touch: bill.acharjee@solent.ac.uk.”
  2. Solent’s Student Hub is a third-party hate crime reporting centre. This means anyone who has been affected by hate crime can visit the Hub for support and advice, without the need to go to the police or disclose personal details. Anyone wishing to report a hate crime can email the Student Hub via student.hub@solent.ac.uk.
  3. Solent University's Health Assured staff helpline and counselling service offers expert advice and compassionate guidance 24 hours a day, seven days a week
