The Students Representative Council (SRC) has assured students about its commitment to engaging management in solving issues that affect the welfare of students.
In a press statement signed by the Public Relations Officer, Mr. Fidel Osei Agyemang on Saturday 30th of November 2019, the SRC mentioned some measures they’ve put in place to alleviate some student challenges.
In the statement, the SRC mentioned that, plans are advanced when it comes to procurement of Lacoste for students in Level 100 to 300.
‘‘SRC has made provisions for the production of the level 300s Lacoste of which we have received half from the supplier, and very soon, we shall receive the other half and distribute together with that of the level 200s.’’ the statement said.
With the issue of security, it mentioned that, some actions have been taken to boost the work of the community watch group in improving the security at the diaspora during examination.
‘The SRC has made provisions for the Community Watch Group to expedite their work, and we encourage all students to cooperate with them, especially during this examination period. We will make arrangement for the night shuttle to operate within the examination period.’’
Again, the statement mentioned that, through the advocacy of the SRC and their discussions with management, other provisions have been made in improving internet connectivity on campus. ‘’ …We are glad to inform all students that the fixing of WiFi in lecture rooms have begun and in fact most lecture rooms on campus have WiFi connections. We encourage students to use them for academic purposes, and the SRC will never relent on advocating for more improvement.’’
Also the SRC has mentioned that, an agreement has been reached with University management to set up an office called the Students Financial Support Office (SFSO). The office is aimed at creating space within the university for students to engage in some work which will fetch them money whiles on campus. “The office will also assist students to get some work within the university in the libraries, printing press and other places where students can work as part time to raise income to assist their stay on campus. This project will begin, hopefully, by next academic year. The SRC is ready to commit funds to start and maintain this project.’
