Inclusion Committee


Our commitment to inclusion underpins everything that we do at the Sports Union. Sport develops knowledge and skills, supports mental health and enhances wellbeing, keeps people active and strengthens our communities. Sport provides a wide range of benefits of which we want all students at The University of Edinburgh to be able to access and enjoy.

We are therefore taking steps to strengthen this commitment even further, by introducing a Sports Union Inclusion Committee. This committee will be chaired by our Vice-President Inclusion, Fraser Tait (in 2021-22) and will consist of student representatives from the following demographics / groups of students: disabled, postgraduate, widening access, ethnic minority, international, LGBT+ and transgender and women in sport. This will provide a collective voice to drive forward our unwavering commitment to inclusion within sport at Edinburgh.  


You can now apply for a role on this committee - all role descriptions can be found below. Please note that currently this committee is not constituted as part of the Sports Union so this allows us to be dynamic and flexible with positions, remits and the make-up of the group. Therefore if you feel that you would be suited to representing a group not included in the list below, then do not hesitate to get in touch.
