The BAME (Black Asian, Minority Ethnic) Ambassador Scheme

Activity: Other


Academic staff supporter of the BAME (Black Asian, Minority Ethnic) Ambassador Scheme launched in September 2017 at the University of Huddersfield by the SU Education Officer, Jon Stephen. The scheme challenged the academic community to diversify the curriculum, as well as decolonising reading lists and to adopt an inclusive learning environment. It also raised hundreds of pounds to support children in Syria and negotiated teaching and learning authentically at senior level committees. The scheme won the Students' Union of the Year Award at the NUS Black Student Awards 2018. The award represents the hard work of the BAME Ambassadors and the staff members who supported them.
