As Black History Month celebrates its 33rd Anniversary, MDXSU recognise that being forward-thinking on liberation, equality, diversity and inclusion on campus & online is vital.
Our students come from different backgrounds, bringing unique knowledge, skills and experience to the #TeamMDX community.
We've collaborated with students across the Black Liberation Student Group, African & Carribean Society (ACS), Student Healthcare Academics Race Equality Diversity and Inclusivity Network (SHAREDIN), Amnesty International and MDX FM to bring you a whole month of events celebrating black excellence! From Open Mic Nights to Panel talks, competitions and so much more!

As part of Black History Month 2020, we are launching the Wall of Black Excellence to recognise and celebrate Black excellence within our community, not just this October, but all year round – Black students, alumni and staff across the University who have made a significant contribution to our community and wider society.
This is your chance to tell us about a Black student, alumni or a member of staff at Middlesex that you think has made a significant contribution to our community and that everyone else should also know about!
Nominations will be reviewed by a panel of MDXSU Student Group leaders and Student Officers and will be displayed in the Wall of Black Excellence here on our website!
On Monday 1st June 2020, we made pledges to ensure that we continue to support our Black communities at Middlesex University and wider society (read the full article here). Since then, we have shared resources every week on social media by providing everyone with something to 'Read, Watch & Listen' - ensuring that we educate ourselves and others on the oppression & discrimination and also the success & contributions from Black people & culture.
We are also commited to always supporting and celebrating our Black students, that's why we have some exciting projects to kick off what will be a journey of long-standing anti-racist work for our communities! Click Here to read about what we'll be working on this year ahead.
