Groenewald, Johan; Fourie-Malherbe, Magda – Journal of Student Affairs in Africa, 2019
Research evidence suggests that approaches to promote student success in higher education are becoming more holistic and integrated in nature. This implies that not only classrooms and laboratories, but also residences, as informal out-of-class learning environments, can potentially contribute significantly to promoting student success. The…

The World Health Organization's (WHO) benchmark of persons with disability in every population is 15.6 per cent.

However, suitable accommodation for students with disabilities is an even greater challenge that is exacerbated by the absence of appropriately designed, maintained and managed residences. In particular, the adverse impact on…

Paalo, Sebastian Angzoorokuu; Van Gyampo, Ransford Edward – Journal of Student Affairs in Africa, 2019
Elections in fledgling democracies are punctuated by perceived and observed cases of vote buying otherwise also called electoral clientelism -- regarded as a major threat to democratic consolidation.

Tumubweinee, Philippa; Luescher, Thierry M. – Journal of Student Affairs in Africa, 2019
In this article we argue for a socio-political conception of space in order to show how conceptualisations of space can provide conceptual tools in the reframing of policy and designing of policy interventions in pursuit of higher education transformation goals. In keeping with Lefebvre and others, we conceptualise space as a co-producer of social…

Laubscher, Jacques – Journal of Student Affairs in Africa, 2019
Higher education in South Africa is experiencing a time of accelerated change, increasing complexity, contested knowledge claims and inevitable uncertainty.

Steyn, Stephen – Journal of Student Affairs in Africa, 2019
In this article it is argued that, through adjustment of the point of view from which history is taught and theorised in architecture schools, grand narratives of progress can be critiqued and manipulated at a structural level. This could provide more lasting transformative practices than those produced by attempts to subvert such narratives by…
