​The function of the Communication Officer in the SRC is to act as the direct link between the SRC and the students of Stellenbosch University (SU). The Communication Officer plays a very important role as this person acts as the person who conveys information relevant for the students to the student body. This can be done via the social media of the SRC or via mass communication.        Transparency within leadership is very important, and the Communication Officer is the portfolio through which the SRC should be transparent. Success in this portfolio would be that the SRC conveys the relevant information to the students and listening to the students so that issues can be resolved.

Student Wellness

Chloë Krieger Email: Chloek@sun.ac.za 

With a bit of guidance from my predecessor and what they did with the portfolio, I could see that it was surrounded by mental health but the campus context has since changed and this required that the portfolio deals with more than just mental health. For example, Food insecurity and safety and health because of COVID-19. It is still important, however, to raise awareness around the issue(s) of student mental health on our campuses, normalize the conversation on the topic, work towards the creation and implementation of a student mental health policy document (in conjunction with University management). But also, to deal with general student wellbeing especially during this time.​

​​​​​The Transformation officer has a duty to represent all students on campus. It strives towards providing a student experience that is welcoming to everyone without discriminating. We are shaped by the environments that we originate from as students. It is, therefore, the responsibility of the transformation officer to bridge in the gap by providing a global experience that will violate the rights of others based on their language, gender, religion, social class, and political affiliation. The goal is to create an environment that will offer students an opportunity to learn from one and another through embracing multiculturalism. Human dignity and justice guide the transformation agenda.
