International Staff Group

The aim of this group is to contribute to a fair and supportive environment which provides equality of opportunity and freedom to international staff, as well as to everyone else within Loughborough University. Both academic and support staff are welcome.

The International Staff Group aims:

  • To be the voice of international staff at Loughborough University, with respect to issues such as xenophobia and discrimination, immigration and visa, Brexit, support for families of international staff, etc.
  • To be a forum where we can discuss experiences and share advice about any matter of interest to international staff in a safe and protected environment and support new international staff members.
  • To liaise whenever necessary with other organizations and staff groups that share the group’s objectives, such as the University and College Union and the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) staff network.

The group is led by a committee, with a chair and three committee members. The current chair is Roberta Bernabei. At least one member of the committee must be an EU/EEA national and at least one member of the committee must be a non-EU/EEA national. The group usually meets every semester, more often if needed.  It also organises social events.
