BAME Ambassadors

Who are the BAME Ambassadors?

As a group of students, we acknowledge the problematic nature of the term 'BAME', although we maintain its use due to the institutions use of the term, we will always distinguish between different communities and their differing experiences. We stand against homogenising groups of students in our day to day work and will actively seek alternatives to this terminology. 

Our work includes, but is not limited to:

  • To work alongside the Students' Union & the University in developing and running student-led campaigns surrounding the BAME Attainment Gap.
  • To seek out, listen & act upon feedback and opinions from our Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students about their student experience while studying at University, thus enabling their voices to be amplified within the University where there is a lack of diversity upon decision making.
  • To actively lobby and contribute to the work of the University in tackling the BAME Attainment Gap, with a particular focus on decolonising the curriculum, diversifying student experience, proactively encouraging a more coordinated and better funded Black History Month and supporting the student population and the community in the Black Lives Matter campaigns.
  • To audit the University for any implicit racism
