To dispel the myth that Cambridge is inhabited solely by people of a certain ethnic background, the University actively sets out to encourage under-represented ethnic minority groups to apply for places. To achieve this aim, The Group to Encourage Ethnic Minority Applications (GEEMA) was set up twenty years ago. Contact the GEEMA Coordinator on
email@example.com. Read about GEEMA events and visits at www.cam.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate/events/geema.html.
A student-run social and support group, the Black and Asian Caucus (BAC) has been in existence for 14 years, and currently has 750 members. BAC regularly organises events throughout the year, one of which is the Young Black and Asian Achievers activity day. They will also mark Black History Week in October by inviting guest speakers. GEEMA and BAC work closely together and regularly visit schools and Colleges to let them know about Cambridge and to organise visits to the University. Contact the BAC President on
Racial harassment includes verbal and physical aggression employed on someone due to their ethnic origins. The victim of racial harassment historically is often non-white. Should you face this form of abuse, you might want to talk to your tutor, supervisor, college chaplain, MCR welfare officer, the Graduate Union President or the CUSU Welfare and Graduates Officer or Black Students’ Officer.
