Are you passionate about connecting with others to address the unique challenges and experiences faced by global majority students? If so, we invite you to join our inclusive Global Majority Students’ Community!
The Global Majority Students’ Community is a group dedicated to empowering and uniting students from underrepresented ethnic backgrounds at Leeds Beckett. We are committed to creating a safe and supportive space where we can discuss and address issues affecting Global Majority students to foster a greater sense of belonging and promote positive change within our university and beyond.
Collaboration is key to our community. We stand in solidarity with other marginalised groups, recognising the importance of intersectionality. We promote inclusivity and diversity, championing the rights and voices of students of all backgrounds, including but not limited to faith, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, and race.
We prioritise the safety and well-being of our members, fostering an environment that is free from threat and intimidation. As such, we do not tolerate racist, anti-Semitic, islamophobic, fascist, sexist, xenophobic, ableist, LGBT-phobic or ageist views expressed within any of our spaces.
We acknowledge that language and meaning evolves, and it is important for us to adapt to the needs and perspectives of the community. Previously known as the Black, Asian, and Minoritised Ethnicity Students' Community, members have chosen to redefine the community name to better reflect their empowered identities. Members emphasise that Black, Asian, and Ethnic Minority individuals are in fact not minority ethnicities on a global scale, making up to 85% of global identities, but are treated as such in certain contexts. This group advocates for students from diverse ethnic backgrounds who have been historically underrepresented in both higher education and society at large, including both UK and international students
We're delighted to offer you free membership to any student community you identify with, giving you access to exciting opportunities to get involved in change-making activity as well as providing you with valuable information and resources to support your journey at Leeds Beckett.
By joining, you'll also gain entry to a private online community forum where you can connect with fellow students in your community to discuss shared experiences and agree on priority campaigns.
Throughout the year, there will be numerous opportunities for you to participate in both online and on-campus activities. We encourage you to have your voice heard and get involved. If you have any ideas for activities you'd like to see or specific feedback regarding your experience as a global majority student, don't hesitate to get in touch with our Student Community Organisers by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
