UCL BME Alumni Network

UCL BME Alumni Network at an event

Established by UCL graduates nearly 10 years ago, the Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Alumni Network is a supportive community of alumni who self-define as BME. This includes, but is not limited to, people of African, Asian, Arab and Caribbean heritage.

This group empowers its alumni by inspiring them to develop productive long-term relationships and collaborations with its members and invited speakers and share practical and enlightening advice on professional growth and progression.

The group aims to build a strong network with UCL BME staff, students, and alumni to help create positive change in the everyday lives of BME individuals.
