The Dean of Students, Mrs Prem Coopoo, is responsible for the overall management of all units in the Division of Student Affairs.
CAMPUS HEALTH AND WELLNESS CENTRE (CHWC)
Health care services offered are cost-effective, convenient, accessible and comprehensive. Our goal is to assist the individual sick or well in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery, such that holistic development of the individual is enhanced. We subscribe to international norms, ethics and standards of health delivery. Ethical principles and human rights underpin our practice values. The care provided is patient/client centred to ensure optimum satisfaction with our service. The main health care service is located on the Lower Ground Floor of the Matrix.
COUNSELLING AND CAREERS DEVELOPMENT UNIT (CCDU)
If you want to make career decisions, develop job search skills, acquire information on study opportunities or discuss a personal problem with a counsellor, CCDU has a team of highly professional and experienced psychologists, social workers, career educators, support staff and intern psychologists with a positive outlook and a strong work ethic aimed at helping students make the best of their time at Wits.
OFFICE OF RESIDENCE LIFE
University residence can be different things to different people – a place to eat and sleep (but seldom study), a place to study through the night and seldom sleep, a place of loneliness surrounded by strangers, or a welcome home away from home. Fortunately most Wits students find that they soon make friends and settle into a disciplined routine in which their studies, social activities, sport and mundane domestic chores, such as doing laundry and (occasionally) making their beds, all contribute to a hectic but fulfilling life in one of the most exciting environments that they will ever encounter. At Wits our residences are LIVING and LEARNING centres. You are at Wits to gain an education, so your academic work must be your highest priority, but you must also find a bit of time to relax and to socialise, and – very importantly – to exercise. Support is provided in each residence to students that are experiencing difficulties (academic or personal).
STUDENT DEVELOPMENT AND LEADERSHIP UNIT (SDLU)
The Student Development and Leadership Unit provides administrative, training and development
support to the Student Representative Council (SRC) and its clubs and societies. The SDLU creates an
environment that is enabling and empowering, and one that allows the space for constructive debate
and critical enquiry for the benefit of the students.
