We believe that when students are supported to tackle social challenges, learn about issues and connect with each other, both communities and students benefit. Student social action creates positive change now and in the future, enhancing communities and equipping young people to become active citizens for life.


Our vision is a society in which every student engages with social and environmental challenges during their time at university, empowering them to become active citizens for life.


Our mission is to mainstream student social action, supporting a new generation of active citizens to achieve positive change now and in the future.




We are: social, ambitious, motivational, bold and long-term.
