Description: The Community Hub is dedicated to promoting inclusivity and advocating for students in the School of Law. The Hub provides a safe space for students to have open discussions about issues of under-representation, and a chance to meet like minded people. The Idea: The Community Hub is an already established group within the School of Law. It was established by Rachael O’Connor, the Director of Student Support, to address issues of under-representation within the School. The Community Hub has been working to foster inclusivity by opening up dialogues about under representation and its effects on the students. We would like to continue to empower students and keep implementing initiatives aimed at enhancing the experiences of all members of the School of Law community. Becoming a society will help us reach out to a wider range of people and to host larger scale inclusive events in the University. Ambition: Our ambition is to keep encouraging conversations about inclusivity to show that there is always room for improvement. We would like to provide a safe space for School of Law students to meet each other in an inclusive environment, which has been lacking in the past, and will facilitate a safer space for students to share their experiences.

A society for skaters of all levels to allow people to meet others with similar interests and create a fun and enthusiastic group who can skate together at Planet Ice. I am a part of the gymnastics society and imagine this would run in a similar way, in that skating sessions would be scheduled at the same times and place and every week, where skaters could develop their skills and train together, whilst also having coaches on-site to assist and help develop the group's skills. The ability to enter skating competitions in representation of the University of Leeds is also something I would like to propose as part of the society.

Roundnet is best described as a fusion between volleyball and squash. It’s a 360° game played in two teams of two, with a circular net. The concept is very similar to beach volleyball, with each team having up to three touches of the ball before hitting it onto the net (instead of over the net like in volleyball). The rally continues until a team cannot return the ball or a fault occurs. It is a sport that is growing rapidly around the UK due to its social, fun and competitive nature. It would fit perfectly with all the other Sports societies at Leeds.

What our missions are: 1. Provide opportunities for PPST students to meet and interact with fellow members of our courses; 2. Members of our society will meet at the same time every week. Since PPST students are all great thinkers who love to discuss topics regarding philosophy, psychology and the history of science, we will regularly hold evening talks which would invite students or academic staff to give a 'mini lecture' on an interesting topic as a start and encourage all our members to sit around and exchange views with each other; 3. Provide special support for PPST students who are struggling with their university academic life in general, or having problems understanding specific modules in philosophy, psychology or history and philosophy of science. We will do our best to help students coming from a different language or cultural background to keep up with their studies and integrate into our warm society group; 4. Year 2 and 3 students will welcome year 1 students at the beginning of their first semester every year, preparing new students for their exciting university life and being there to support them through any difficulties; 5. Career talks will be given in our weekly gatherings during the semesters. Because finding a job is not an easy job, we will invite people with experience to guide us through how to find a job after our degree in PPST. Members of our society can also communicate with one another, and talk about our past working experience and the skills we need to get employed in the future.

1. Activate the knowledge, build the skill! The Leeds Business Negotiation Society hopes to establish a society at the University of Leeds, which aims to cultivate outstanding global business talents with negotiation skills and industry knowledge through simulated formal business negotiation competitions and various extended business activities. Business negotiation happens in every single day, and all industries. With participation in the real or virtual business negotiation students from different study background can activate their knowledge, which lied only in form of dead textbook literature in their head. To be more specific, students will have a knowledge on how to employee the knowledge they acquired. 2. The ambition of the society and objectives of the society. Activate the knowledge, build the skill. Leeds Negotiation Society will follow this doctrine. The Leeds Negotiation Team is designed to improve students’ ability to negotiate in a range of different scenarios, from simple two-party negotiations to complex multi-party situations. To actively help students step out the literature in textbook, have a clear view on how to employee acquired knowledge. “We are aiming to build a society that embrace the diversity and facing the international.” That is cliche. The founders intend to establish connections with domestic and foreign universities, and the Leeds Business Negotiation Society will create a networking platform for students who are ambitious in business. but our ambition will not only stop on this phase. Our plan is to be the largest business society, be the largest supplier of business talented students, be the McKinsey of University of Leeds, and influence the reputation of Leeds University Business School. 3.The types of activities we would like to run The hands-on workshops are carefully designed around three key tensions present in most negotiations: how to create and allocate value, how to define the interests of the principal and his or her agents, and when to emphasize others' perspectives as well as assert one's own. We will invite experienced mentors and professors to teach students how to manage these tensions, whether they involve trade-offs or creatively exploiting differences. Try increasingly challenging scenarios, respond immediately, reflect on your performance, and get constructive feedback from “opponents” you’re negotiating with. You'll leave with a better understanding of yourself and the confidence and tools to achieve better results, thereby gaining experience through both tensive negotiations and concrete cases. We also have potential to reach resources on the local businesses. With the well trained skills, the society members can provide consultancy services to local businesses and provide supports on the business negotiation.

Believers’ LoveWorld (BLW) is a faith based society. We are a fellowship group that functions exclusively in university campus territories. We are passionate about people and promoting to them the benefits of a thriving relationship and fellowship with Jesus, through the Word of God. In a place like university which identities can be lost, we aim to bring out the very best in ourselves as students, through a greater sense of self-value and self-appreciation and thus, building an awareness of the responsibility of oneself as a determinant agent for the success of all life endeavours. Our investment in students in this manner is a demonstration of love which ultimately will create and build a happier world and environment of love in our Universities.


We want to empower students to achieve and attain their best potential with their academics and social lives whilst being able to practise their faith and uniquely focusing on the ministry of the Holy Spirit on campus thereby making them valuable and innovative individuals in all ramifications of life and building a happier community that is grounded in love.


Vision

Our vision is to take the divine presence of God to the nations and people of the world and demonstrate the character of the Holy Spirit.

(The Holy Spirit is God and the bible describes God as being loving, patient, kind, the Father of all comfort, light and so many other beautiful characteristics.)


Aims

1) To impact the lives of students on our campus, raising them to be successful and high achievers in each and every area of their lives. We want to identify, sharpen and actualise the potential of every young individual we come across and we aim to raise awareness of the amenities provided by the university that will help them do this.

 This would be achieved through the numerous activities and events we’d hold as a society (see below).


2) To create an accommodating atmosphere where all Christians on campus can fellowship together in unity and also where non-Christians can come and learn about God and his Son Jesus Christ, meaning our society is all inclusive.

          This would be achieved by hosting bible study sessions to learn more about the bible and biblical principles as well as social events such as worship concerts and other forms of entertainment, offering Christians and non-Christians alike fun alternative activities to participate in. This will not only meet the social needs of people with such interests but will also provide a platform for students to pick-up or develop skills in dance, singing, drama, writing or even technical skills in media, production, sound etc.


3) To identify, discuss and conquer challenges related to academics, work/careers and relationships and more, with the intention of sharing practical, biblical principles that would help in overcoming such challenges. As Christians, we believe in a culture, a kingdom culture and we will provide a space in which we can share this culture and explore it. This culture is one that permeates into all aspects of our lives - it shapes our entertainment, our academics, our worldviews, our careers, our finances and much more.

             This will be achieved through various events, meetings and workshops (detailed below).


4) To help relieve the social tensions of a postmodern society by creating an atmosphere that enhances spiritual growth where people know that they are loved unconditionally, completely regardless of their shortcomings. We believe we are God’s outstretched arm of love and we believe that each person has intrinsic value and has a purpose in life. We are in active pursuit of ensuring as many students as possible have a sense of this value. We believe that God has a beautiful destiny in store for everyone and all they need to do is discover it and walk in it. Believers’ Loveworld Society is dedicated to ensuring that students see themselves in this light and not according to negative perceptions of themselves or the negative perceptions that society might impose on them.

    We aim to provide a social and intellectual space for the students of Russian here at Leeds. The Russian-speaking academic world is vast and diverse, and we want to celebrate that diversity. Given that we do not learn other Eastern European languages, or Central Asian languages here at Leeds, it would have to be through a Russian-speaking lens. That being said, we do not want to make this exclusively about Russia, but look further afield in other Eastern-European and Central Asian states and probe further into the arts and culture in these regions. We hope to create more cultural opportunities, not only for students of Russian, but for students who are interested in this part of the world's history. We hope to hold academic talks, pub/café socials, film screenings, and debate clubs for Russian-speakers. We also hope to promote different celebrations, such as International Women's Day, as this is a very important celebration in Russia, or Maslenitsa, which is comparable to Pancake day, but a week long! We also have hopes of holding charity events for those affected by the war in Ukraine.

    Endocrinology society would be a medical academic society aimed to increase opportunities and exposure to the field of endocrinology to health care students. This would be done by hosting talks from endocrine specialists, revision sessions on endocrine disorders and their management, sign-posting students to any other opportunities that may arise, and helping students understand the pathway into endocrinology. Due to the multi-system nature of endocrine disorders, it may also be useful to collaborate with other societies to help students understand how endocrinology is related to other specialties. This society would also maintain an active social media presence by advertising upcoming events and posting revision questions. As a society, we hope to hold an annual conference in which guest speakers can share more about their field.

The society will aim to educate students on what a career in histopathology can entail as well as provide educational sessions relating to the undergraduate medical curriculum. The society will also act as a medium through which students can register their interest in attending post mortems at St James Hospital. We have registrar and consultant support regarding this.

This would give us the opportunity to bring our cohort and second year students closer together through the organises activities mentioned in the following section. The running of the society itself will also provide us with a shared responsibility to take on together, making great practice for our shared responsibilities in working life. Further, this will be an asset to welcome new cohorts each year and would create a sense of unity as the course expands with this ever-progressing career.

    The Sri Lankan society is dedicated to providing a place for fellow Sri Lankans to meet and feel closer to their country and culture. We want the society to be a place that enhances unity within all Sri Lankan communities and act as a platform to showcase and represent Sri Lanka. The society plans to dedicate events to everyone. From events influenced by various Sri Lankan communities such as Sinhala Tamil New Year and Eid - originating from various Sri Lankan traditions and customs to events relating to the unique Sri Lankan music culture and that one sport that many of us are obsessed over, Cricket! 

    As of writing this, Sri Lanka is in an unexpected economic crisis that many Sri Lankans are finding hard to deal with. These tough times heighten the necessity of a Sri Lankan Student society for the student community. We hope that the presence of the society will create a place that Sri Lankan students can utilize to develop bonds with each other, their homeland and the city they currently live in- Leeds. 

    For non-Sri Lankans, we want to be an eye opening society that introduces them to Sri Lanka- through a youthful point of view- all the fun within our culture, the significance of our traditions, and our vision and hopes for Sri Lanka.

    The 93% Club Leeds is part of the 93% Foundation, a leading UK registered charity, helping state school students in the UK overcome barriers to career progression. The Foundation has branches of 93% Clubs in 40 universities in the UK and keeps growing all the time. The 93% Club Leeds is the branch at the University of Leeds. The society aims to support state-school students at the University of Leeds in overcoming systemic barriers to achieving successful careers. We founded the club in 2020, at a difficult time during the pandemic, but despite this, we have been met with a strong interest and engagement from students. We organise events with distinguished speakers, workshops, exclusive opportunities with top employers to help state school students overcome barriers to high-paying careers due to their lower socio-economic background and achieve social mobility. The 93% Foundation currently has more than 10,000 student members at UK universities and has been featured on BBC, ITV News, the Economist, the Guardian, the Times, the Telegraph, the i and Sydney Morning Herald, to name a few.

    A Sustainability Society that connects students (Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Postgraduate Researchers) in all four schools within the faculty - Institute for Transport Studies, Food Science and Nutrition, Earth and Environment, and Geography. 


    This society would  create and promote sustainability culture among students which leads to sustainable actions that help make a real difference in society.


    This society also achieves some of the goals  in the University's  Sustainability Strategy document, which is to ensure that students gets involve in sustainability initiatives within and outside  the university (See extract from the  Sustainability Strategy below)


    The society will organize events to showcase  students ideas and talents that promotes sustainability, organise inter school sustainability challenge,  work with sustainability experts and lecturers , host events with community centers, volunteer with NGOs, collaborate with other university societies (within and outside Leeds) to promote sustainability through social, fun and educational events.


    Extract from the University-of-Leeds-Sustainability-Strategy

    Sustainability is part of being a student at the University of Leeds, no matter what your discipline. It’s that simple. And as sustainability becomes an increasingly core part of the University, it makes sense to ensure that the concepts, issues and innovations relating to it are integrated into all our learning programmes. After all, sustainability is cross-disciplinary, perfectly slotting into the majority of undergraduate and postgraduate courses and opening up a rich seam of research possibilities. Alongside formal learning, this commitment also focuses

    on supporting students in developing, understanding and communicating the skills that they have – from volunteering, internships, etc. 


    -Students come to the University of Leeds to learn. However, while they are here we encourage them to think beyound their studies and become responsible citizens. We want our students to be part of Leeds in the greatest sense – from taking part in events and exploring the city to being responsible neighbours and volunteering for local organisations, it’s about getting out and getting involved.


    This responsibility also extends beyond the local area. We encourage our students and alumni to play their part as global citizens, to volunteer around the world, and to think about the role they can play in sustainability long after they’ve left their student life behind.

    IHPSoc is an academic society designed to cover the Single Honours degree in International History and Politics (IHP) completed under the School of History. 

    We intend to slot into the pre-existing society line-up as an addition rather than a substitution. The History Society is one of the Unions largest. IHP is a tiny course of around 80-90 per year. 

    Due to our course size, we would be able to have much more regular and smaller socials whilst still being active members of and participating in History Soc's large-scale events. 

    Having a IHP Soc would enable friendships to grow beyond the confines of the classroom and embolden networking amongst peers with similar niche interests. 

    We intend to do this by:

    - Holding regular socials. Being a society would enable much wider publication and turnout.

    - Creating a football team to enter into the inter-society league.

    - Forming a team to take on other societies in a range of activities and sports in a non-competitive fashion.

    The main aim of the society is to provide a non-judgemental space to encourage people to have fun while exercising and trying new sports.

    The society is aimed at absolutely anyone, those good at sport, and, more likely, those not so good.

    I believe that those good at sport may not want to stick with the commitment that some other sporting societies require. To ensure that all players are on an equal playing field, the sportier people will be spread across the teams, or will have harder activities to complete.

    The frequency of how often we will run sessions will depend on popularity and number of members, but the idea would be to have regular hour-long sessions. Once the society is fully formed, the aim is to run these weekly. The main structure of these sessions is to start with a warmup, getting to know everyone’s name, followed by the main game we choose to play, and close with a cooldown. The main game will be a team game, so that no one will feel isolated. Once the society grows, I hope to select the game by a vote each week.

    As well as these frequent sessions, there would also be more occasional sessions where we arrange to go somewhere a little different. For example, we could go to LaserForce, or ice skating. Again, this would depend on how many people are wanting to take part in these events but I would suggest every or every other month.

    Throughout our experience of university, we have noticed that for players that are not in the basketball team, there is not much opportunity to play in an organized, indoor environment. Thus, we propose a social basketball society, in which anyone who fancies playing basketball casually can meet up with others for short games. The key aims of this would be having fun, playing basketball and meeting like-minded people. This would be achieved by creating a non-competitive environment, open to anyone, mixed-gender, mixed-ability.

    We would provide an indoor space, available a few times a week at regular times for people to come and play. Much like the Casual Kickabout society, there will be a WhatsApp group in which members can say which days they are available to play, and a list of players is compiled before each session. We also aim to make the society democratic, in giving members preferences of who they want to play with and what kind of game (half-court, full-court, etc.).

    For more variety, we also plan to propose tournament sessions, possibly at the end of each term, as well as socials for members that enjoy following professional basketball such as the NBA. These would be organized by the committee.

    We are a group of 3 students wanting to install artwork along the Aire & Calder Navigation (part of the canal in Leeds). This is to encourage the public to walk along the stretch and improve health & wellbeing in the community through active engagement with art. The art will be done by University of Leeds students initially, with the aim of expanding in the future by reaching out to artists across the city. We want to make a positive impact on the city's landscape, bring the student and local communities together to benefit the culture of Leeds. We have liaised with the councillor for our chosen stretch of water who was keen to improve that area, hence the society will strengthen these relationships and bring the stretch more visitors.  

    It is based off an ongoing project in Plymouth where they installed a wall of artwork to brighten up a particularly dull area. The project gained great traction and has expanded to other community works - something we hope will happen with this society.

    This would be a society focused on bringing Taylor Swift fans together across campus and dedicated to the collective appreciation of Taylor Swift and her music.


    Ultimately what we think that makes this society distinguished from the other current societies set up is that we believe this society is quite unique in terms of its idea itself. There are not really any other societies set up at the moment that are based on people coming together in admiration for someone’s music. It would allow a wide range of people from the university to come together and make new friends whilst forming connections with people they might have met or come across campus before whilst enabling a work-life balance for students. Additionally, what makes our society unique is the events and opportunities we plan on offering provided we were given the green light to set this society up. 


    Potential examples of activities include quiz nights, karaoke nights, movie nights, powerpoint nights, re-release listening parties, and so on. We’ve deliberately aimed to try and focus the society around a wide range of events that have an equal mixture of drinking and non-alcoholic events to address the requirement of needing more social activities for people who choose not to drink whilst providing some daytime and virtual events for students who may commute to campus as we felt that many societies can often fail to cater to a wide range of audience.

    Our Mission:

    To further the provision of empowering, long-term aid to refugees. We do this primarily by offering grants to NGOs providing legal aid to refugees and asylum seekers.

    To unite the international community in support of human rights for all those affected by forcible displacement: We seek to educate and raise awareness of the injustices perpetrated against refugees, asylum seekers, and other vulnerable displaced populations worldwide, and of the possibilities for tackling these injustices. We do this through a range of events, as well as through our mythbuster and infographic series on social media. 

    To model inclusive and intersectional activism: From challenging voluntourism to environmental sustainability and volunteer mental health, we seek to demonstrate that change can be made in a way that is both respectful and impactful, without being exploitative.

    Warhammer is the most popular table top wargame. It involves a lot more than just a strategy game however, including building, customising and painting your own armies from a wide variety of factions. Each faction has its own strength and weaknesses and has a huge amount of lore associated with each in the form of books. When I first came to Leeds I made a few posts in uni clubs asking if anyone else played, 4 months later we now have an unofficial club with just under 20 members. We meet every week at Patriot Games Leeds which we have a great relationship with. Additionally, most weeks we have another activity we do in the evenings, so far we've done bowling, poker, bar trips, a trip to Warhammer World in Nottingham and several trips to Murfield Miniatures. Making this club official would allow us to reach of aims to; welcome new people into hobby, build new friendships and allow us to run large scale tournaments and painting competitions.

    An exciting, new society encompassing the breadth of general surgery (breast, colorectal, endocrine, upper and lower gastrointestinal (GI), transplant, vascular, emergency general surgery and trauma surgery). The society aims to provide focused specialty talks, workshops as well as career talks giving insights on how budding surgeons can achieve their competitive specialty. Robotic surgery will also be covered as a sub-specialty as it is now being increasingly used across general surgery. General surgery presentations comprise a large proportion of GP visits and acute admissions to secondary care; increasing exposure to general surgery throughout medical school will benefit learning for students even if they choose to pursue careers in emergency and general medicine as well as general practice. 


    General Surgery Society Aims:

    1. Aiding students in creating a professional surgical portfolio which clearly demonstrates their dedication, aptitude, and relentless commitment for their chosen sub-specialty of general surgery (research, clinical exposure, electives).

    2. Working alongside Leeds School of Medicine to demonstrate how to obtain speciality-specific skills which will be essential during later stages post medical school with application processes which will demonstrate certain competencies have been achieved.

    3. Encourage students who have had little to no exposure to general surgery to get involved and be confident when asking professionals on career advice and how to build their surgical portfolio when having had no prior experience.

    4. Provide students with realistic advice on how to approach the competitive world of surgery; how to deal with failure, unexpected hurdles and careful planning so that they are much better equipped to deal with any unexpected changes during their career paths.

    5. Aid and support students alongside their studies on extracurricular academics that are realistic to achieve when undergoing an intensive degree with high contact hours and outside study time.

    6. Considering outside factors e.g. geographical location, and how increased competitiveness in some parts of the country can influence future job opportunities, and how to tackle these hurdles to increase chances of starting a general surgical

    Rotaract is a charity with over 200,000 members across 180 different countries. Rotaract Clubs are open to anyone aged between 18-30 with a passion for volunteering in their local community and fundraising for other charitable causes. The aim of the Leeds Rotaract Club is to bring residents of Leeds and students at the University of Leeds together to encourage positive community relations. Leeds Rotaract Club arranges fundraising and volunteering events in the local area, for example we have recently hosted a pumpkin carving virtual event in aid of End Polio Now and we have done some litter picking with the North Hyde Park Neighbourhood Association (NHPNA). Leeds Rotaract Club has also formed a partnership with NHPNA meaning we will be volunteering with them for events such as The Advent Walk in Headingley in December. The Rotaract Club will meet every 1-2 weeks depending on the number of events that have been arranged, and the Club will offer flexibility to members to allow them to focus on their academic studies. Membership will be free for all members to encourage inclusivity.

    I want to start a social work society where we meet with other social work students both in 3rd and 1st year. At the moment people are on placement so would meet less regularly however when placement is done it would be nice for people to meet more regularly to talk about the struggles of the course but also encourage about the course. This is important because we do placement which is different to many of the people we live with in student housing so having a place outside of uni to talk about it but also to meet and convenient times would be nice ie on the weekend because we know people are on 9-5 placements or meet after a recall day.

    This group would enable us to gather once a week in Hyde Park to eradicate the suppression put on us when walking home alone in the evening. With hot beverages and snacks, we can create a comfortable, informal, and relaxed environment where we can discuss the daily perils of being a young woman in an extremely dangerous area. Having spoken to several groups of female students, I can deduce that we have had universal encouragement to start up such group, as they believe there is a lack of informality and relaxation in some groups aimed at doing what we would. Not only would this be a great opportunity for people to meet and create an empowered female community, but it is also a chance for people with shared experiences to discuss these deeply personal matters.

    What this society will do?

    This society will bridge and connect various medical specialities and the management of an acutely ill patient who has experienced a traumatic injury. Although in medicine trauma typically elicits thoughts of orthopaedics these pathologies are rarely life threatening compared to abdominal trauma and infective pathologies.

    Management of these patients is complex and requires and MDT approach.

    Why do you want to set it up?

    Experiencing/observing trauma management on my placement highlighted the lack of medical student exposure and understanding of these situations.

    What are your plans for this academic year?

    Hold events regarding the management of trauma in different systems;

    1. Management of obstetric and gynaecological trauma?

    2. Emergency laparotomy case-based discussions?

    3. RAPIDS (1-5) Revision sessions?

    4. (Acute Kidney Injury) AKI what to do?

    5. Medicine in a War Zone; managing trauma patients in the middle of a crisis

    We are the only university synchronised swimming club in the north of England, offering to our members the opportunity to learn artistic swimming from scratch or develop their skills in routines and figures, hopefully leading to competitions and performances in the future. The club is open to everybody with any level of synchronised swimming experience, the only requirement being the ability to swim 100m in front crawl.

    Synchronised swimming (now officially called artistic swimming), is a fun and complex sport, which will improve your strength, flexibility and overall fitness. It is a great way to make friends, and it is suitable for everyone as you can swim as an individual, in a duet, or in a team; casually, or competitively.

    The development of commercial awareness is invaluable to all university students. Our society will prepare the student body to enter commercial industries and perform well in job interviews.

    We would like to provide students with a monthly newsletter which would state the opportunities available to students that upcoming month- workshops, events, application deadlines etc.

    Ideally, the newsletter would be released with commercial awareness articles from various industry sectors, written by students themselves. This would help them develop their commercial awareness further as well as help students develop communication and analysis skills they will require in interviews.

    We would also like to have guest speakers who could share their experiences with their journey into their sector- banking, pharmaceutical companies, law, finance etc. Additionally, we would offer commercial awareness workshops.

    If we would get enough people, we would also like to enquire to different newspapers about group memberships so that students can have cheaper access to them as that would help their acquirement of knowledge.

    Importantly, we would have social media accounts offering guidance to students of where to begin their commercial awareness journey and include updates of any significant news. The social media accounts would guide and support students with their important commercial awareness journey.

    We believe that this society would be a place for like-minded students to come together.

    The society would offer socials such as bar/ club outings as well as non-drinking activities.
