Class Act is the newest Oxford SU campaign, set up at the end of April this year to support, represent and camapign on behalf of students from working class, low income, first generation, and state comprehensive school backgrounds, as well as care leavers and estranged students.
Although there is a lot of focus on efforts to help those of us from one or more of these backgrounds to get accepted into the university, the experience we have once we’re here doesn’t get the attention we think it needs. We’re trying to change that.
The campaign has already gained the attention and support of students and academics alike at the university, and our committee has more than twenty elected members
Being new on the campaigning scene, we have a lot planned over the coming year, and we’re bursting with ideas to improve the landscape for current students whose social, income or educational backgrounds might disadvantage them during their time here at Oxford.
Our work over the coming year will focus both on the common concerns associated with each of our focus groups, and on the more specific problems members of these groups can face at Oxford. We’ll be doing both campaigning work and will be hosting social and speaker events throughout term times.
