Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Network

We are here to create a community for both staff and students from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds where they can connect and support each other, and seek to identify and find solutions to racial issues.

Working together as one to aspire and inspire, the Network seeks to identify, address and find solutions to the disparities, needs, priorities and concerns of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic staff and students, so that the BAME community in the University feel represented, appreciated and have equal opportunities.

The Network places equality, diversity and inclusion at the heart of everything it does, with particular emphasis on integration, wellbeing and success of all members.

The Network comprises of BAME members of staff, students, friends and allies of BAME individuals and groups, including alumni of Ulster University. The Network will meet twice per year.
