The funds secured from this event, has contributed significantly to the well-being of such students in the past years, since its inception by the 1995/96 Students Representative Council (SRC).
- Library: Redesign, Refurbishment & Learning Commons: Printed information material has proliferated and the Library was transformed into an information warehouse. In the 21st Century much of information is in digital forms and in abundance. The Library is no longer a place for reading, study or research only but also a site for collaborative learning. The UL Library has challenges that include amongst others: 24 hour reading room now being used for group discussions which is frustrating quiet seeking students; main Library spaces becoming diminishing as the collection increases with the increasing number of students; fewer spaces on the shelves to accommodate increasing books – and thus, needs some support to be modernized in order to provide an environment that supports the need of the 21st Century student.
- Water & Sanitation: Training Problem Based Learning Curriculum Development & Implementation for Water Sanitation Program: The Water and Sanitation department of the University of Limpopo offers a BSc in Water and Sanitation Program which is currently undergoing a curriculum revision in order to offer a balanced program that better addresses community needs as well as furnish a more rounded student product. This will need expertise in curriculum development in order to offer a competitive program and thus the University of Limpopo believe there might be experts reading this message, who might be interested to assist and/or be partners by offering their expertise in dealing with this challenge.
- UL Child Development Centre: The Centre was opened in 2008 with only 4 children. By 2010-2012, the number rose to 52-54 children. The Centre went through a challenging process to reach where it is today. Its recent status still needs a lot to be done, in order to achieve a well-balanced, educational and mind development child care centre. There is still a need for: additional 2 classes, 1 event hall that can accommodate 200 people, educational toys, outdoor toys, sleeping mattresses, 2 TVs, Fridge, 2 extra paid teachers, etc.
- Rural Development & innovation Hub: Transformation of UL Core Functions: Community Services and Engagement are considered an add-on and are not infused into teaching and research; and academics operate in silos. This does not auger will with the concept of multi-disciplinarily. Problems of our communities are multifaceted and require a combination of disciplines working together to find solutions to community problems. The Rural Development and Innovation Hub (RDIH) was established to play a facilitative role in assisting faculties, schools and department to fulfil the mission and vision of the University of Limpopo – being “finding solutions for Africa” through stimulating innovations and interdisciplinary. The RDIH therefore seeks collaboration with other Universities in the Institutionalization of community engagement at the University of Limpopo.
