VUT WELCOMES NEWLY ELECTED 2022/23 SRC
11 October 2022
The Vaal University of Technology (VUT) officially welcomes the newly constituted Students Representative Council (SRC) for the 2022/23 term of office. As a University that embraces technology, the elections were conducted virtually where the student community exercised its voting rights without any interference. This year’s elections had a voter turnout of 38.35% of the university student population and this is above the national voter average of 30.52%. The electoral process was also audited by an independent body which confirmed the results.
VUT is one of the few higher education institutions that have completed their 2023 SRC electoral processes and this is an indication of the efficiency of online elections. The SRC is a statutory structure as indicated in the Higher Education Act, and it, therefore, remains a key stakeholder in matters of student governance at VUT.
Congratulations to the newly elected members!
