The BSSC Inclusion Ambassador program has been established to help promote and celebrate the diversity within BSSC and to allow our community to better understand the experiences students and staff have in their everyday lives.
Students who have been trained as Inclusion Ambassadors will:
- Be informed about and sensitive towards people with disabilities, people of diverse cultural and religious backgrounds and people with intersex variations, diverse sexualities and gender backgrounds.
- Promote advocacy for diversity and a culture of inclusiveness within the college and broader community.

- Value and celebrate the diversity at BSSC by supporting BSSC events such as Cultural Diversity Week, Wellbeing Week and Respectful Relationships Day.
- Work closely with other BSSC Inclusion Ambassadors.

- Communicate with and be a voice for the many diverse groups within the BSSC community.
- Always maintain professionalism and clear boundaries in interactions with staff and students.
