StAnd Together is a joint initiative between the Students’ Association and the University with a focus on student wellbeing and mutual support. Everyone has a role to play in keeping the St Andrews community safe, welcoming and supportive, and StAnd Together is where students can unite to share this responsibility. Both Student Services and the Union support StAnd Together in coming up with peer-developed solutions that are relevant to the student experience today.
StAnd Together currently includes three student-run projects: the Got Consent, Got Support, and Got Limits campaigns.
- GotConsent aims to raise awareness of sexual misconduct, educate students in bystander intervention, and support survivors.
- GotSupport (Peer Support) aims to connect the St Andrews community through a one-to-one meet-up service open to any student looking for a little extra company and friendship during their time at St Andrews.
- GotLimits aims to promote health and safety awareness around alcohol and drugs, and to ensure our community is welcoming and inclusive.
