In 2017, the UQ Students as Partners Program (UQSaPP) project was initiated. Co-led by a student (Lucy Mercer-Mapstone) and staff member (Aimee Parker), this project took a partnership approach to designing the UQ-wide program.

This collaborative approach took the shape of 11 students as partners pilot projects trialling different aspects of student-staff partnerships in the UQ context. Across these projects, 29 student fellows and 22 staff worked in partnership to design and inform various aspects of UQSaPP. All student fellows received a scholarship for their involvement, funded by the UQ Student Strategy.
