Molo, hallo, lotjhani, hello, sawubona, dumela, avuxeni, ndaa and a warm welcome from your Students’ Representative Council (SRC) for 2019/2020.
We, the SRC, are the highest decision-making structure of student governance. We represent you, your interests and well-being. We do this through university committees, policy-making and co-operative decision-making on campus.
The SRC is made up of 15 members who either represent other student organisations or are independent. This year’s SRC majority party is the Economic Freedom Fighters Student Command (EFFSC) of which I am a member.
Below, you have the full names and portfolios of all the members that make up this SRC. We want you to know that we are here for you and that our door is always open. Where exactly to find that door is also available below and we urge you to make use of our services.
Believe us when we say, whatever the problem, whatever the question, we’ve experienced it or have had to find the answer before. This year, we are hoping to have important conversations that result in sustainable programmes and policies. We want whatever we initiate to outlive our term. We want students to look back in years to come and say, “That was a problem we used to have at UCT”. That is what we will strive for, for you and the university.
If you want to know more about our duties, functions, privileges and term of office, please read the SRC Constitution and election bylaws, approved by UCT Council (the governing body of the university) as institutional rules.
The SRC is a very important stakeholder within UCT; there is no decision that can be taken without the student voice.
Your SRC President,
