Welcome to Stellenbosch University

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Welcome to Stellenbosch University Student Parliament        

Speaker's address

In striving to reflect our nation's ideal of inclusivity and our diversity as people, we are entitled to human dignity and as students, the respect of our chosen representatives as well as their transparency and accountability to us in the work bestowed upon them. Student Parliament is a catalyst for this collective accountability, promoting of our democratic society where robust engagement of all stakeholders to enunciate the challenges we face as 'Maties' is of paramount importance. The observance of our procedure & substantive regulations that frames this engagement is to heed to the values of accountability, transparency, consultative governance and excellence tempered with respect, fairness and equitable resolution.

We as students are important stakeholders at this university and as such, we as agents of social change must work at developing the necessary stable, credible, and impartial forum that works to the benefit of all in our move toward equity and substantive equality considering our political and social landscape and the intersectional daily challenges we face along with other stakeholders.

The activation of chapter 4 of our student constitution in observation of its fundamental importance requires us amplify our stories tempered in the above-mentioned values, this is a collective effort which Student Parliament will facilitate by way of robust dialogue toward a just and equitable end.
