Their recycling efforts have resulted in the University being actively involved in successfully reducing waste on all six campuses. The Greenline society focuses on raising awareness on environmental issues that affect the University campuses as well as society at large.

What you should have learned at school: The University of Pretoria’s Constitution for Student Governance

MARKO SVICEVIC

Every week Perdeby takes a look at something you should have learned at school to assist you in day-to-day life. This week, we take a brief look at The Constitution for Student Government.

The Constitution for Student Governance (CSG) is the document which governs all students and studentorganisations at UP. The preamble of the CSG states that it is founded on the principles of dignity, equal recognition and respect for all individuals and communities, and a commitment to transparent and efficient student governance. The preamble also affirms the principles set out in the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996. The CSG binds all students, studentorganisations and the Student Representative Council (SRC). It is, however, subordinate to the Higher Education Act 101 of 1997, the Institutional Rules of UP and the UP Statute. The current CSG has been in place since 2013.
