Do you want to be a student ambassador and organise events that promote race and social equality.
If you want to be the change, then get involved.
The Diversity and Inclusion Student Ambassador Project is led by the University of Manchester in collaboration with the University of Manchester Students' Union, with partners across MMU and Birmingham. The project has come about from research on Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) student experience and outcomes, with findings that the experience of BAME students often go unfulfilled. The project aims to create a sense of belonging, empowerment and safer spaces for BAME students at the University of Manchester. By putting on events that promote race, social equality and inclusion. The programme aims to tackle immediate issues, and create a unique space in which BAME students can thrive and have access to opportunities that might otherwise be hidden, as well as working towards long term change in improving the conditions at our universities for a more diverse range of students.
"At the Students Union we’re working on a joint project with the University on our Diversity and Inclusion Student Ambassador Programme.
Being a student ambassador has opened up many doors for me. I would strongly encourage all students to apply to this Programme.
Remember, as well as taking action on race and social equality you’ll also have the opportunity to build your own skills and networks.
Step Up Stand Up and be the Change”
- Riddi Viswanathan, International Students' Officer

Applications to become Ambassadors are open to all students.
However we would particularly welcome applications from students who define as Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME).
