Newnham is a welcoming and inclusive community in which BAME students can feel comfortable being themselves.

One of the ways that this is created is through the option of having a BME family when college families are allocated. We have also had events such as movie nights and brunches.

As the BAME officer I aim to continue these traditions as well as increasing the variety of events and helping Newnhamites feel connected to the wider Cambridge BME community- look forward to intercollegiate bops, swaps and pre-drinks for some of the few club nights that play seasoned music.

The CUSU BME Campaign also puts on events all year round with amazing speakers and opportunities for education and dialogue.
