Over the past couple of months we have been working with the Faculty Officer for Law & Philosophy, Hira Amir Malik to launch a faculty-specific branch of STEER.  STEER believes that one of the best forms of support that you have as a student during your time at University is from fellow students and through faculty-specific branches of peer support you can be matched with someone who has very recently undertaken the same course has you and can relate to many of your experiences.

Our Activities & Volunteer Coordinator Elaine Shepherd who runs STEER our current STEER models- Peer Support & Pandemic Pals (see details here STEER peer support (stirlingstudentsunion.com) said "I am overjoyed to see STEER grow and evolve and am delighted to support students and faculties to develop peer support models to provide the best possible student experience at Stirling. It has been a pleasure to work with Hira, who is actually one of our own STEER Captains so I am confident that the Law & Philosophy faculty is in safe hands and I am excited to continue to support her. Well done Hira!" 

 

Our brand new and first, (hopefully of many), faculty-specific branch of STEER is "Steer Law & Philosophy" is now LIVE!  If you are undertaking a degree in this faculty, find out more and sign up today (bottom of the page) STEER peer support (stirlingstudentsunion.com).  

 

Hira has worked hard to see this project through from initial idea to launch and now looks forward to matching her STEER Captains and Crew. She has had, and will continue to receive, full support from the Students' Union and the faculty and will work on feedback from students to ensure that this programme is as beneficial as possible. 

She says:  

"Students have been missing out on a sense of community due to the unusual times we are in. Steer law and philosophy bridges this gap as it  students to turn to their peers for that informal support that you would usually get outside lecture theatres.  

I remember as a first year law student, I would feel uncertain about some aspects of my course and unsure about the extracurricular activities available to me. I would have benefited greatly by just talking to a 3rd or 4th year law student and they would have pointed me to the right direction, this would have boosted my confidence greatly. I wanted students to feel supported through a more informal avenue and that is why I decided to incorporate STEER into our division. I have been lucky enough to work with the union and faculty staff to bring you this amazing opportunity!"
