Abstract

As a function of SAS, student governance is primarily focused on supporting the student body to self-organize aspects of campus life and be able to participate in the co-governance of HEIs. In addition, student governance is a vehicle for student development in so far as students are active in participative governance systems, such as those that govern HE in modern democracies. The student governance function is thus a reflection of the national political system in which the institution is embedded.
