Taking action in higher education

Nita Sanghera

Nita Sanghera

Nita Sanghera passed away on 16 January 2020. This is such sad news for her family, her loved ones, and for the union. Nita worked tirelessly to create opportunities for working class students in her role as an Access to HE lecturer at Bournville College. After serving on the West Midlands regional committee, the Black Members' Standing Committee and the NEC, she was elected vice-president for the further education sector in 2018. At the end of May this year, she would have become the first black woman president of UCU. It is a tragedy that we have lost her.
