Simran Tak

Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Officer


Simran Tak My name is Simran Tak and I am a 3rd year. I was BAME officer in the 2018/2019 academic year and worked on some important projects which I would like to continue my work in, for example a campaign tackling casual racism on campus. I feel that by continuing my work for another year I have a chance at bringing some change that can improve the student experience for all BAME students across the university.

Multiculturalism is an integral part of society and should be celebrated at the university to ensure that minority students are aware that they are not being overlooked. Being a part of a minority community myself, I am well versed in the problems faced by racial minorities through personal experience and conversations with other minority students. Over the last year I have done a lot of research into the lack of racial awareness on campus and would like to continue my work to improve the student experience for all BAME students.

Main manifesto points

  • I will collaborate with the SU events team to try to organize events that showcase the multi-culturalism present at the university so students can come together and celebrate diversity on a wider scale.
  • I will push for the organisation of SU nights that incorporate music from a range of genres in the easily accessible nightclub.
  • I will try to create understanding about the different races and cultures present in the university community amongst students and staff with appropriate research into the best way to do this.

I will also continue working on the campaign that I started last year to tackle casual racism on campus; I will work with the VP of Wellbeing and Diversity to try to create a platform where BAME students can voice their stories.
