Two men and two women laughing together

Networks ensure under-represented voices are heard and can make change.

 Networks are an exciting way for students to build communities of under-represented groups and create change through collective action. They are a platform to lead campaigns to represent students that identify with the Network and bring positive change, with support of the SU. 

Joining a network will enable you to be better represented within the university, meet students in a similar situation, empower you to campaign for change and ultimately lead to an improved student experience.

While we are open to networks for any under-represented groups of students, recent research has shown that the following groups of students would benefit from creating a network here at Herts:

 Black Students 

 Disabled Students 

 International Students 

 Mature Students 

 Post Graduate Students 

 Parent Students 

 Women Students 

So how are they different to societies?

Societies are more of a platform by which students can socialise, whereas networks are all about under-represented groups of students coming together to create change. Network sare also only open to students who identify with that group, which makes them a safe place to share experiences and opinions.
