Founded 2013

  • Mission statement

    UniTED's mission is to unite and strengthen student social action around the world. And, our vision is a global community of university students uniting for effective social action.

    Our theory of change is three-fold: students create a positive impact in their communities, today; they shall become informed leaders of society in their careers; and their global relationships will create a new generation of global citizens - empowering international civil society to transforms our institutions to meet the needs of the world in the 21st Century.

    We believe that many of the world's great problems flow from people simply not being able to relate to each other. So, we create equal, authentic, life-long, global relationships between students. Relationships that remove attitudes of “them” and “us”, which personalise the statistics and compel action. Relationship that make collective action more effective and sustainable. Relationships between students who share common experiences and will be the future leaders of development. Changing the world one friendship at a time.

    These partnerships are led by students who we train as local community organisers on their campuses. They bridge student projects with student volunteers and link promising projects with UniTED and wider civil society. Enabling students to become leaders in development.
