An introductory message from our new Black Student Support Coordinator, Lucia:
Hi All, I’m Lucia, the new black student support coordinator. I’m somewhat of a student veteran at SOAS as I have been here since 2013 when I started my masters. I’m currently finishing up my PhD in law and happy to be able to support black students in this new capacity. I also tutor undergraduate law courses and truly enjoy engaging with students on an academic and support level. As the black student support coordinator, I’m here to offer support, bring awareness and challenge issues relating to black student’s experiences at SOAS. With your help and insight, we will continue the conversations on race, diversity and representation at SOAS in the many ways it affects black students specifically. I invite you to approach me, whether by email or if you see me walking around on campus to share anything you think affects black students which needs to be a topic of conversation. Looking forward to working with you all.
