An LGBTI student group in Suva, Fiji, has attained official affiliation with the University of the South Pacific’s Students’ Association at the Laucala Campus.
The Drodrolagi Movement conducted “a strong and sustained campaign” to achieve the registration, said its president, Kris Prasad.
The group’s application was initially rejected by the Laucala Campus Student Council. The group appealed, and the decision was overturned by the Students’ Association Federal Council, Prasad said.
He said the University of the South Pacific is the premier regional academic institution serving several Pacific island nations. It has campuses in Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
