Join or create a group.
The best way to get things changing at your university is to form your own CAAT group. While each student union is different, the process for setting up your own group is straightforward.
- Check for existing groups on campus
- Gather some support (Student Unions usually require 5-20 members)
- Contact your Vice-President for Student Activities
- Fill out the forms
- Get organising!
Once formed, a group will usually benefit from support from the SU including transport and administration assistance. And you’ll become a valuable part of CAAT’s University Network!
If you have any questions, or need of any resources, email universities(at)caat*org*uk.
Organise an action against arms companies on campus.
Protesting arms companies on campus is an effective and creative way of challenging one of the important links between arms companies and universities.
- Find out when arms companies are coming to your campus on our Google-map
- If the Google-map doesn’t have any information for your university, look up your university’s Careers Service. Check their website, look through their literature and sign up for email alerts about future events. Keep an eye out especially for information aimed at engineering or physics students. Many of the recruitment fairs take place at the beginning of the academic year (in October/ November) so make sure you are ready to take action!
- Find your university’s group, set one up, or just gather some friends.
- Get organising! See our ‘Ban BAE’ campaigning page for inspiration and help.
