What happened at the latest Students' Forum?

What is the Students’ Forum?

Students' Forum is the space for Goldsmiths students to suggest, debate and influence key policies that shape the Union and our students day-to-day lives. Held regularly throughout the year, the Students' Forum is attended by Full Time Officers, Part Time Officers and students across Goldsmiths. It gives opportunity for updates on current projects, allows a place for policy discussion and allows students to monitor and hold to account the Officers that they elected. The full recording can be watched here.
