Reciprocal mentoring

At Liverpool John Moores University, we needed to do something different that would transform the way our university understands and responds to the perspective of black students who are part of our community. 

That’s why we developed the reciprocal mentoring scheme, in partnership with John Moores Student Union, so there can be shared learning between both senior management and students. Together, we can build the changes our university needs.

Members of the University management team were matched with current students with lifechanging results. 

These films tell the story of this groundbreaking scheme and the transformation we are seeing as a result in a powerful set of interviews with LJMU alum and local radio host Ngunan Adamu. 

If you are an LJMU student or member of staff and interested in participating in the next round of reciprocal mentoring, then please email
