The College is delighted to announce that we have appointed Dr Thanuja Galhena as our first Adviser to Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Students.
Thanuja Galhena is an engineer, a Bye-Fellow of Newnham, and a former graduate student here (NC 2012).
Any Newnham student, including both BAME and non-BAME students, can speak to Thanuja if they have general or specific concerns relating to race and minority ethnic backgrounds.
In an interview a few years ago, she said, “Newnham is my home. All I want is to make it home for thousands of strong, invincible, loving and kind women who can make the world a better place tomorrow.” This role offers her a new opportunity to make that happen.
To arrange to talk, please email her on firstname.lastname@example.org.
