As a statutory body of the University, you elect your Convocation Executive Committee called Convex, and three representatives to the University Council. Your Convocation President joins the Chancellor, the Chair of Council, the Vice-Chancellor and senior management as one of the senior office-bearers of the University. The role of Convocation is to highlight and represent the interests of graduates and to marry them with the progressive developmental goals of the University.

Your Convocation representatives together with the Alumni Relations Team are responsible for establishing and developing on-going relationships between the University and its 164 000 plus graduates (both locally and internationally). The purpose being to gather alumni support, financial and otherwise, for University affairs and activities.
