Raising awareness of stammering...

...to allow those who are involved with University life - students, staff and university personnel - to recognise a stammer and know how to react. Many stammerers are unintentionally insulted by the way in which people respond whilst someone is stammering, and so it is vital that the level of knowledge on the subject is increased.

Changing attitudes and ousting stigmas...

...because people's perceptions of stammering are often influenced and moulded by a particular individual, and are thus unaware of the wide range of forms a stammer and its 'ticks' can take. By removing preconceived ideas of stammering, stammerers can begin to feel at ease in any environment.

Supporting stammerers during their journey...

...through holding seminars at universities nationwide to address issues that stammerers face. Whether these be assessment methods for oral exams and presentations, the difficulties provoked by social situations or concerns about

post-graduation career prospects, STUC will work to help those in need where possible.
