At UWE Bristol, students can get involved in a variety of community societies.
National, faith and identity student societies bring together students who share similar demographics, identities, cultures & beliefs. They are passionate about sharing their backgrounds and interests and teaching all UWE Bristol students about them.
Representatives from these societies are invited to the Equality and Diversity Forum.
