Students’ Governance

SUA recognizes the importance of participation of students (undergraduate and postgraduate) in realising its vision and objectives and, in advancing its core missions. Sokoine University of Agriculture Students Organisation (SUASO), led by the President, Vice President, Prime Minister, Ministers, Deputy Ministers and Ministerial Secretaries and other officials is guided by a constitution that is subject to approval by SUA COUNCIL.

SUASO, which works closely with the university administration through the Office Dean of Students is represented in various important university committees including SENATE and COUNCIL as provided for by The Sokoine University Charter and Rules, 2007.

The university management therefore values the contribution of SUASO, which is responsible for student’s academic, political, social and recreational life. SUA administration also uses this partnership to nurture and mentor SUASO leaders into lifelong leaders.

The university has a Gender Policy and through this framework, the university administration values the role of female and differently-abled students in the university business and to this effect, female and differently-abled students are represented in various committees as provided for in the university Charter.

SUASO constitution recognises establishment of affiliate organizations within the university student body. These affiliate associations which have been and continue to be established are aimed at fostering cooperation and understanding amongst students and spearheading academic and social interest of groups at discipline or degree-level.

This system provides an objective institutional modality for SUASO's representation in Faculty and Institute Boards and their committees such as Undergraduate Studies Committees as provided for in the Sokoine University of Agriculture Charter and Rules, 2007.
