UCT Src, Student Governance at UCT is founded under principles of Collaborative Governance. As such, numerous structures exist to support aid and work hand-in-hand in assisting students and driving change within the institution. The Student Governance Model underpins this philosophy and illustrates the structure of various student organisations and their service to students.
The Student Representative Council (SRC) is the highest decision-making structure of student governance.
It represents all students at UCT, and their overall interest and social well-being, in university committees. It is highly involved in policy-making and co-operative decision-making on campus.
The SRC is elected annually by the students and consists of 17 members who either represent other student organisations or are independents. The duties, functions, privileges and term of office are set out in the SRC Constitution and election by-laws approved by Council as institutional rules.
The SRC is a very important stakeholder within UCT, as there is no decision that can be taken without the student voice. The notion of co-operative governance is embraced by the institution through these processes.
