Here at Leeds, we have a vibrant culture of political and campaigning activity and our diverse range of societies offers students the opportunity to work on and contribute to causes that they are passionate about. We are also proud to celebrate the diversity of our student body, in which people of different nationalities, faiths and cultures are represented.
There is a growing community of students and staff working in Leeds on human rights causes and this year has possibly seen more successful collaborations among different groups than ever before. In November, the University celebrated Human Rights Week, a product of the tireless work, imagination and dedication of students who are committed to stand up to the injustices they see in the world around them. I hope that in the same spirit, this project will grow to become part of the fabric of human rights work on campus.
