Sad news for the OU and The Students Association.

The Open University was very sad to hear of the passing of the Students Association’s former Vice President Equal Opportunities initially then later Vice President Equality and Diversity, Cherry Day.

Cherry was deeply committed to supporting students with a protected characteristics and always strove towards creating positive change. Cherry made an enormous contribution to ensuring the voice of students was heard at the OU and also chaired the Disabled Students Group and was a long term Central Committee Representative.
