Student Hub's Vision and Mission

Theory of Change

Theory of Change: We believe when students are supported to connect with each other, learn about issues and do something to tackle challenges, communities and students benefit and students leave university becoming active citizens for life.

History

Winchester Hub was launched in January 2014 in partnership with the University of Winchester, an institution committed to student social action. We are part of the national charity Student Hubs, which was founded in Oxford in 2007 and now has Hubs in universities across the South of England.

Our aim is to mainstream student social action and work with the university and the local community in Winchester to achieve this.

Starting with Schools Plus, Impact International and the Social Impact Internship Programme, we have quickly grown to offer six volunteer projects, regular one-off volunteering days and a range of training, events and campaigns for students to get involved with. Since September 2014, we have also delivered the Try It Awards, providing funding and mentoring for students with social enterprise ideas.
