We are UNDIVIDED, a student-led organization that focuses on gender, decolonization, anti-ableism and LGBTQIA+ students.

History

Our story started in 2017, when KU Leuven student Eva Sevrin started UNDIVIDED for KULeuven out of a necessity for spaces for students from a minority background. UNDIVIDED for KULeuven wants to amplify their voices and critique on policy measures that involve them, but where they are often left out of the narrative.

On the 14th of February 2018 UNDIVIDED for KULeuven was officially started as a student-led diversity platform, facilitated by the KU Leuven diversity office.

Since then we have worked with volunteers on all kinds of projects: the decolonization manifesto, panel discussions about trans health, lectures by international professors, writing blog posts, movie screenings and so much more. We even have a seat in the diversity council of the university.

That brings us to today. Due to budgetary issues, we lost our funding by the KU Leuven. But our work needs to continue. That’s why we are relaunching ourselves as UNDIVIDED vzw, a recognized student association with the same goals and values. But in order for us to continue organizing these events, we will need you. Do you want to help decolonize the KULeuven? Organise pride week with us? Or even just chill and have an interesting discussion at one of our hangouts? Then please contact us to become a member, and let’s make a difference together.

As of Monday, November the first 2021, we are a student organisation, recognised by LOKO.
