Students' Forum: what happened?

First things first, a little reminder... what is Students’ Forum?

Students' Forum is the space for Goldsmiths students to suggest and influence key policies that shape the SU and our work. Held regularly throughout the year, Students' Forum is attended by Full-Time and Part-Time Officers who give updates on their current projects, allowing students to monitor and hold to account the Officers that they elected. During the last Forum, held on Tuesday 25th May, we discussed the latest findings on the BME Awarding Gap with doctor James Ohene-Djan and SU Welfare and Lieration Officer ( and future SU President) Sara Bafo
