Overview

The Black Advisory Hub has been co-created with students and with careful consultation with a range of stakeholders from student societies, academic and professional staff, and cognate units and committees, all with an interest in supporting institutional initiatives to address racism and to support Black students, both undergraduate and postgraduate.

The Steering Group for the Black Advisory Hub addresses the need for a leadership body to support the team of project associates and students. This Steering Group will provide oversight of the agenda and priorities for the work of the Black Advisory Hub, and ensure that it stays focused on its objectives stemming from a set of agreed aims and values.

For any questions about the Steering Group, please get in touch at contact@blackadvisory.hub.cam.ac.uk
