Anthropology Department Seeks BME Department Rep

We’re working with the Anthropology Department on an exciting new project to ensure black and minority ethnic (BME) students who study Anthropology are represented in their academic experience.

The role will be a first for Goldsmiths, becoming part of the wider Department Rep system, but with a specific brief around BME academic experience.

The Rep, a 2018/19 current student, will attend department meetings alongside staff, and contribute to the design of a non-credit bearing module. They will have the opportunity to collect feedback from students and shape how the department approaches the BME attainment gap.

In return they will receive a £700 bursary for the year, as well as training and mentoring from the Students’ Union.

 

How to apply

To be eligible for the position you’ll need to be a BME student in the Anthropology Department during the next academic year. Anyone who’s interested should read the full role description and get in touch.

If you have a passion for advocating on behalf of others and have ideas for improving the experience of BME students you can apply by sending a 200 word statement to howard@goldsmithssu.org before 17th September.
