The activities of the SRC of all public and private universities in Ghana are supposed to be in consonance with the laws of the Republic of Ghana as well as the statutes of the institution under consideration. Therefore, the structure of the SRC has undergone a series of transformation over the years as a result of the amendments and review of its constitution to ensure its conformity.
THE STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE COUNCIL (SRC)
The student Representative Council of KAAF University College (KUC – SRC) is an association which embodies the entirety of students of KAAF University College. It was formed in 2008; the very year the school was established. The SRC is the umbrella association under which all other student associations falls. KUC – SRC has a mandate to promote students’ interest and guarantee a better welfare for students. It coordinates the activities of all the various clubs or sub-associations in the University College with the paramount aim of ensuring students’ welfare.
As such, the SRC is prominent for its energy and cautious but effective approach to handling students’ affairs.
This approach has been the trademark of many students who have served as student leaders. Governed by insightful and transformational leaders, the KUC – SRC equally helps to promote the vision of the University College through the implementation of effective welfare activities.
Presently, the council is made up of three major working bodies which are the Executive Council, the Judicial Council and Parliamentary Council.
The Executive Council
The Executive Council, like the executive arm of government at the national level, is the policy initiating and implementing body of the SRC. It comprises the executive committee and the executive officers. The Executive Committee includes the SRC President, the Vice President, the General Secretary, the Women’s Commissioner and the Treasurer. The executive officers are the Chief of Staff and the local PUSAG President. The Executive Committee and the Executive Officers form the Council of the SRC which is chaired by the SRC president.
The Judicial Council
The Judicial Council serves as the legal arm of the SRC. The Judicial Council is mandated constitutionally to adjudicate on matters brought under its jurisdiction. The judicial council chairman chairs the judicial council and presides over judicial committee sittings.
The Parliamentary Council
The Parliamentary Council, which is also referred to as the General Assembly (GA), serves as the parliament of the KAAF University College SRC. It is constitutionally mandated as the highest decision making body of the SRC.
The GA, which convenes every semester, is made up of all SRC executives, committee heads and members, heads of clubs and societies, and all the class representatives.
