Congratulations Kemi!

Kemi Adediran

Congratulations to Kemi Adediran who has been elected as NUSU Racial Equality Officer for 2017/18. Kemi starts the role immediately and will be looking to implement their manifesto over the coming academic year, which was as follows

_________________________________________________________________________________________________

From Fredrick Douglass who found a safe abode in Fenham or the works of the Gateshead and Newcastle Anti-Slavery Society to the vibrancy of Chinatown and Newcastle Mela. Newcastle has and continues to celebrate its BME (black and minority ethnic) population.

However, with the political climate, we are in, I find it more important than ever to ensure that Newcastle University can be a place where BME are not only celebrated but, are proud of the university that has served them.

As your racial equality officer, I will aim to:

1)    CONTINUOUSLY ensure voices of BME are heard

By creating a comfortable environment whereby BME students are freely able to discuss their issues

2)    RAISE AWARENESS through events and societies on culturally sensitive issues

e.g. heritage cultural days, ACS and BAME (which I am both a member of!)

3)    CELEBRATE diversity in the university, 

not only encouraging our incumbent students but prospective students too.

MY GOALS ARE SIMPLE!

1)    Basic dialogue between BME and the students’ union continues

2)    Move towards a culturally inclusive university

3)    Enjoyment of university experiences by BME students (higher satisfaction rates)

Good luck Kemi and I am sure that we will be hearing plenty from you in the coming months.
