Introducing the Commuter Students Council
A first for SPU, the Commuter Students Council aims to be the voice of those who live off-campus. The council will consist of a Chairperson, known as the Commuter Students Officer of the SRC, and six cluster representatives. This new structure aims to bring the concerns and views of commuter students to the forefront, providing them with adequate representation within the SPU community.

Individual portfolios will be showcased in the coming weeks. We encourage students to get involved, nominate and vote in these monumental elections. Stay tuned for more updates.
