My name is Salma and I'm a criminology and forensic psychology student and I'm your new ethnic minority officer!! How exciting, I hope to represent our POC students here at Chichester and make your study more comfortable in this old town. Please feel free to email me about any queries and I'll support you in any way I can :)

I aim to work closely with the student union to ensure we represent the interests of Black and other ethnic minority students inside the student union in order to establish a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment for our POC students.
