Student Representative Council

The Student Representative Council (SRC) as led by President Nicholas Nyati is the highest decision-making body of student governance. It represents all students at and their overall interest and social well-being in the university. It is involved in policy-making and co-operative decision-making on campus.

The SRC is elected annually by the students and consists of 21 members who represent other student organizations. The SRC is a very important stakeholder within NMMU, as there is no decision that can be taken without the student voice.
