  • Improving learning experiences for students on the campus.
  • Creating avenues for students to plug into academic opportunities as provided by the university or the office of the academic affairs committee.

Class Representative Protocol

The class representation system promotes communication and consultation between students, SRC Academic Committee and staff. It supports the University’s Strategic Imperatives of Excellence in Facilitating and Outstanding Student Experiences. The Class Representative Protocol provides guidelines on the administration of the class representation system and aims to ensure that the value of having a class representative system is recognised by staff and students.

Class Representative: A student in a given class who is voted to represent their fellow students in that class and to serve as a conduit for communication between students and staff. (Class representatives will be available for every cohort/class in the Leadership Core Programme and ALC Degree Programme)
