Louise Banahene MBE

University of Leeds
WS1 Lead and Director of Educational Engagement

I’m Louise Banahene, the Director of Educational Engagement at the University of Leeds. I have a varied role, but in its simplest terms, I’m responsible for ensuring fair and equal access to students from a diverse range of backgrounds coming in to study at the university.

I’m also responsible for student success – supporting students once they’re with us here on campus – and I think about that across the whole student life cycle, from undergraduate, to postgraduate taught and postgraduate research level.
