SRC election results and other updates

18 October 2017 | Campus announcement

Dear students and colleagues

The campus announcement aims to inform members of the University of Cape Town community about:

1. SRC provisional results

The provisional results of the Students’ Representative Council elections held between Monday, 9 October, and Friday, 13 October 2017, are out.

Fifteen candidates were duly elected, with the final results to be released pending the finalisation of outstanding issues.

2. UCT council approves fraud and corruption policy

The UCT Council approved the UCT Fraud and Corruption Policy at its meeting on Saturday, 7 October 2017. UCT supports and fosters a culture of zero-tolerance towards fraud and corruption in all its activities, so it is important that all staff, students and UCT representatives are aware of this policy.

This policy is not entirely new, but the university has collated various existing UCT policies, regulations and practices into one document. Reference is made to the Prevention and Combatting of Corrupt Activities Act (Act 12 of 2004), which is a national policy that is applicable to all public and private entities.

Everyone is encouraged to familiarise themselves with this important policy and to contact the Executive Director: Finance or Registrar’s Office for more information.

3. Cell C extends free internet access to academic resource sites

UCT students and staff who are Cell C subscribers will now have free internet access following the decision by the mobile network provider to zero-rate most academic resources sites until September 2018. With this initiative Cell C is addressing cost challenges associated with access to educational content and remote learning. UCT students and staff will not require a special sim card to access the zero-rated sites.

4. Residence Academic Development Committee’s call for proposals

The university’s Residence Academic Development Committee (RADC) is calling for proposals for Living and Learning programmes for 2018. The purpose of the Living and Learning programmes is to establish a bridging gap between faculties and residences, and to foster student success.
