Welcome and congrats to the founder members of BASE
"On behalf of our growing community within Black British Academics, I would like to publicly thank Elsa Macharia, Naomi Oti-Sampson and Ray Taiwo (three of of my final year undergraduate PR students at Bournemouth University) for taking the initiative to offer your services to support Black British Academics. I am amazed that you all rose so quickly to the challenge of developing a clear mission for this new network and identifying specific needs of undergraduate and graduate students that this network can meet, based on your own experiences. BASE clearly fills a gap we have had at Black British Academics and it is your acorn for you to nurture and develop – with our full support – so that it will grow into a major community of its own, uniting undergraduate and graduate students within higher education institutions across the UK and become a major movement for change. I am so very proud of you."
