Your SRC

The Student Representative Council is one of the oldest student bodies at the University of Dundee and has been responsible for raising the student voice on campus since the University was founded. The SRC is an elected body of students and has a series of important responsibilities which make sure that students have a lead role in deciding how DUSA can best serve students.

The SRC meets four times a semester to discuss issues that matter to our students and develop solutions and answers to big questions on campus. 

The Council is also made up of the DUSA Executive, School Presidents, Independent Member of Court (IMC) and other positions. Along with the SRC Chair, the DUSA Exec, School Presidents and IMC are elected in the spring elections in the second semester. Each SRC member has a specific area of student life that they represent, covering everything from the 1st Year Rep to a Mature Rep, Disabilities Rep and an Equality, Diversity and Welfare Rep. In addition to the DUSA Exec, the council is made up of the following SRC members and School Presidents.

SRC Motions Passed 22/23

Craig Reoch

"The SRC was a fantastic opportunity to gain some real skills to benefit me in my future career. It teaches you a lot of things you'll need after graduation that you don't even realize - prioritizing, meeting deadlines, producing written content etc. But what really counts when you graduate are those skills you get outside your course - leadership, interpersonal skills and the ability to speak up. Everyone needs something to help their graduate CV stand out from the rest - SRC gives you that. I wouldn't be where I am without it"

Sofia Skevofylaka

"Personally, being a student representative has given me skills for life. Through the SRC, I learnt about the DUSA organisation, how it works and how I can help students. The SRC prepares you for different debates, undertsanding key decisions and how to position yourself best to product value. I would recommend everyone to run for SRC, because it will not only look outsanding in your resume, but you will get to actually contribute in real life to people that need you, which is an opportunity that comes very rare to such a scale."
