Lubaba Khalid is the Vice President of Welfare at the University of Westminster Student Union. Before this, she was the Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic Representation officer. She graduated in International Relations at Westminster. She has written a report where she explored the attainment gap data at Westminster. This report was shared with senior members of the academic community at Westminster and was received well. Throughout her term as both the BAME officer and VP welfare, she dedicated her term in showing the importance of decolonising university and not just the curriculum. Through this, she has been able to successfully campaign for intercultural sensitive support services but also provided a space for Westminster’s black students to share their lived experiences. On a national level, Lubaba is an elected member of the National Union of Student’s National Scrutiny Council
