UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES)


The SSEES Society Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) Network Launch

28 March 2022

The SSEES Society Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) Network has been launched and any SSEES student is invited to join


We would like to inform all SSEES students that following the proposal and initiative of SSEES Student, Ehigie, the SSEES Student Society has supported the development of the SSEES Society BAME Network as a subgroup of the Student Society. 

The SSEES Society Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) Network is inspired by and will take lead from the work of the UCL Student’s Union Student Network. The network works to better represent the views of SSEES students who self-define as BAME, including but not limited to, students with African, Asian, Arab, Caribbean, and Indigenous heritages. All students, regardless of how they identify, are welcome to join the Network to learn more about how to support each other.  

The network will include social events and meetings with the SSEES Society Committee Members (such as SSEES Student President and Welfare Officer) to discuss how the SSEES Student Society can better represent and support our students. There is also an opportunity for students to network with each other, organise any campaigns or projects, and enjoy some social events. If you would like to join a group chat for the network on WhatsApp, please get in touch with President of the SSEES Society, Freya Proudman via email freya.proudman.18@ucl.ac.uk

The School is committed to being a place where everyone feels welcome and valued. You can read more on 'BAME Support' pages. We would also like to remind you that we are looking for 'SSEES Stories' - everyone's journey is unique and we would love to hear about yours. If you are a student or alumnus from the first generation in your family attending the university and or you identify as Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic, please get in touch with Chair of the SSEES Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Committee, Dr Kristin Roth-Ey.
