STAND Student Advisory Panel

The STAND Student Advisory Panel is a diverse team that reflects the communities within Irish higher-level education, representing students across campuses, backgrounds, experiences, courses of study, and gender.



About the STAND Student Advisory Panel

The STAND Student Advisory Panel is an essential part of Suas Educational Development’s mission to mobilise young people to take action for global justice. This consulting body provides insights and perspectives on STAND campaigns, events, activities, and more. In addition to providing feedback on STAND’s work, the SAP is able to raise issues, topics, and experiences that the groups feels are important for STAND to be aware of and potentially include in its work. This can include a greater urgency around the need for climate action, barriers that prevent students in rural parts of Ireland from participating in programmes, or the need for social spaces for international students.


As a member of the SAP, you:

  • Learn more about the work of a global justice-focused organisation.
  • Build interpersonal skills and confidence speaking about issues that are important to you.
  • Are invited to co-lead meetings alongside your peers.
  • Make a difference in ensuring that youth perspectives inform STAND’s work.

Meetings take place online on the first Tuesday of every month at 6PM – 7PM.
