Decolonising the University – Education is taking action
Hiya! I’m Lucy, a third year undergraduate student in the Department of Education. I’m studying English in Education and I love it! One of my favourite things about my department is that you feel listened to, staff actually encourage student’s input! I especially like that they use this mutual respect as a force for social justice. In my blog I talk about one of my department’s initiatives, the Decolonising Education Collective, and my experience within it. I’ll also talk about my recent internship within the department and what impact it’s having on current and future students! My takeaway is that students are made aware of how important decolonisation is to them and what influence they can have! University is a chance to get stuck in so don’t be a bystander, get involved! Student voices are so important, you have the power to make positive change!
