Student Welfare Council
The Student Welfare Council (SWC) serves as a platform where all members of the Student Welfare Committee meet and come together to table, address, advice and execute matters pertaining to students, be it academic or administrative in nature.
The SWC reaches out to diverse members in the University to initiate the process of engagement in seeking for different stakeholders’ inputs before putting it into practice and spur good practice in enhancing students’ experience.
The SWC is to report back to the Vice Chancellor through the office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Alumni on a quarterly basis.
The objectives of the SWC are:
- To recommend on policies relating to students’ welfare (students’ experience)
- To monitor and ensure the “One Stop Centre” at Student Welfare Committee level is being implemented effectively
- To recommend on the enhancement of student facilities, students’ life and experience during their time at the University
- To focus on all relevant student issues determined by current events and/or by suggestions of committee members
- To review orientation processes and practices of each constituent in order to ensure these programmes meet the needs of all students
- To work closely with other members of the University to enable the SWC to appropriately function
