University of Manchester Persian Staff Network (UMPSN)


University of Manchester Persian Staff Network (UMPSN) aims to bring together all the academics and professional support staff across the university interested in Persian culture and run a series of events in association with the University of Manchester Persian Society (UMPS).

This network will also work with staff at partner higher education institutions including Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), University of Salford and Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM).

Through collaboration with UMPS and other Iranian/Persian communities across Greater Manchester, this Network Group will provide a platform to host and organise activities that will enhance the understanding of the Persian culture and tradition by other communities. It will also support Persian-speaking staff, students and individuals living in Greater Manchester by providing a safe environment to talk, discuss and exchange ideas.
