OVERVIEW

The Student Representative Council (SRC) is a mandatory structure which is a prerequisite for all full time running institutions. That is all institutions of higher learning offering qualifications which requires actual physical attendance on campus needs to have a representative body for students. Only institutions that offer strictly online courses may be exempted from this requirement.

The University of Venda’s Student Representative Body is therefore a basic tool of institutional management and effective communication. It is significant in the bridging of the gap between the Management of the institution and the students of the University of Venda. This is because for effective communication and decision-making, not every student of the 14 000 and more can represent themselves or make personal submissions with regards to decision-making.

However the SRC doesn’t exist in isolation from the general populace of students, nor does it represent interests derived from their personal desires. Equally in this paradox, the SRC has the discretion to take any urgent decisions on behalf of the students if such decisions can’t wait until the Mass Meeting, such a decision shall be taken taking into consideration the best interests of students.

MANDATE

The basic mandate of the SRC is to, in consultation with the student populace represent and advocate for students interests in all decision-making meetings with management and other stakeholders, ensure that the academic and social aspects of the students are catered for and most importantly ensure that the voice of the students is clearly heard in all corners of the university.

To ensure that the SRC advocates for correct interests of the students, the SRC shall as guided by the SRC constitution’s Section 23 GENERAL PROVISIONS article 23.1.1.1 which states “Ordinary mass meetings shall be convened at least once per quarter by the Cabinet”, convene such mass meetings to listen to the voices, opinions and requests of the students.

VISION

To be the core-hub of creating current and future leaders for the University of Venda, South African communities, Africa and the world.

MISSION

To equip and develop student leaders into becoming better craftsman who selflessly advocate for the rights and interests of their constituency without letting their personal interests blind them.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES AND VALUES

The guiding principles and values which are considered by the SRC when taking and implementing decisions, are as enshrined in the SRC constitution: Advancing academic excellence; Non-racist and non-sexist. Non-xenophobic; Participatory democracy; Culture of human rights (as set out in the Bill of Rights in the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa); Women leadership development; Community directness; Integrity; Advancement of the rights of the students with disabilities and Equality.

Your SRC is the #One!
