The constituencies represented in student governance are four Societies:

Under each of the following Societies has a female and a male hall:

Nehemiah Society

Jeremiah Society

Habbakuk Society

 

Elections

Students are elected in these constituencies to serve on the Student Parliament, (SP) which is the larger of the two bodies in the two-tier system. The Student Parliament provides the broadest platform for student representation and determines the agenda for student governance on an annual basis.

 

The Student Representative Council (SRC) is elected by and from the ranks of the Student Union. It is responsible for the day-to-day administration of student governance and nominates student representatives to serve on various University committees.

 

An independent electoral committee oversees the annual election processes. All registered students qualify to vote in the election of the SRC and SP Student Parliament, which is held according to voter’s rolls in the various constituencies. Students who wish to serve on the SRC and SP must make themselves available as candidates in the election and must meet certain minimum requirements as set out in the Constitution for Student Governance.
