Sexual violence task group

This task group on sexual violence in tertiary education is the first of a range of member-led task groups which the general secretary pledged to create in her election manifesto. Each task group will have between 6-12 members.

Task group members will operate together, alongside UCU staff, and liaise with elected representatives to inform and develop UCU's organising and campaigning. This task group will run for six months with members carrying out their duties flexibly 3.5 hours a week. Members will meet remotely or in person every six weeks.

Any member can apply to be an ordinary member of the task group, or to be chair of the task group. Please find more information about both roles in the documents below.

We encourage applications from members with varying types of experience and expertise. This includes but is not limited to people with experience of research, advocacy, volunteering, professional or lived experience.

If you'd like to talk about these roles, please do get in touch with task groups coordinator Emma Nagouse.

Application forms

The deadline for applications to either role is 15 July 2020:

Please send completed forms to Maureen McKenzie.

If you are applying for the role of chair and also wish to be considered for an ordinary member, please indicate this in your email to Maureen McKenzie.
