The Student Representative Council (SRC) is a democratically elected committee of students who are passionate about meeting the needs of students and are here to represent you.
They meet every 3 weeks and councillors get the opportunity to raise motions on factors that affect student life which can be passed or failed through democratic vote.
Each councillor has a specific area of student life that they represent including everything from
- 1st Year Rep
- Mature Rep
- Disabilities Rep
- Equality, Diversity and Welfare Rep
The council is also made up of every School President and the DUSA Exec.
What have the SRC done in the past?
- banned all pay-day loan advertisement from campus
- made the opening hours of the library 24 hours during the exam diet
- added a microwave to the library café
- ensured you have fair and equal opportunities during an exam
- lobbied the university to allow you to have your Wednesday afternoons off for sporting activities
- implemented a zero tolerance policy to ensure safety while being at the union
- lobbied for exam timetables to be released as early as possible
These are only a few of the things your SRC has done. These motions show that the SRC is proactive in ensuring you have the best student experience and education possible here in Dundee.
What can reps do for me?
If there is anything in University that you think needs improved, promoted or praised, then you can get in touch with any of the councillors to propose a motion for an SRC meeting. They focus on every aspect of the University of Dundee and are dedicated to making your student life of high quality. Their details are available through the Vice President of Representation (email@example.com) so get in touch if you want the SRC to make an even greater difference!
How will I know what the SRC are doing?
Every student is more than welcome to attend the SRC meetings that take place. The dates of these meetings are available on the website, so pencil them into your diary and come along. If you can’t make the meetings then they will be streamed live on our website too! So grab some popcorn, put your feet up and enjoy all the action.
How can I get involved?
If you are interested in becoming a councillor then all you need to do is put yourself up for nomination in the SRC elections that happen every September. This year the elections are held on the 29th and 30th of September. It’s a very simple process, you need to submit a nomination form and become part of the action! This is a rewarding experience and the campus comes alive with posters and candidates! All information for elections are available via the website.
