This is known as Dar es Salaam University Students Organization and it is abbreviated as DARUSO. Every student who is registered at this University is automatically a member of this organization. DARUSO is structured by three main organs namely cabinet, University Students Representative Council (USRC) and DARUSO Board. The cabinet comprises of President of DARUSO, His/her Vice President, Prime Minister and Ministers of various ministries. The USRC comprises of all students representing their fellows from their classes, faculties and Halls or hostels. Others are appointees by the USRC Speaker and the cabinet members are also included in USRC. DARUSO board is a quasi judicial organ which deals with disciplinary matters for DARUSO leaders. It is formed by Faculty Chairpersons and Secretaries. The role of the cabinet is to run the DARUSO government through its ministries which are formed by the President, Vice-president and Prime Minister. The USRC has the roles of discussing matters concerning students and making final decisions and order the cabinet and DARUSO Board to implement. But USRC decisions should not contradict with the prevailing documents such as University Charter and Students By-Laws.

Students Bylaws

Mkwawa University College of Education, like many academic institutions, typically has a set of student bylaws in place to ensure the smooth functioning and well-being of the university community. These bylaws may encompass various aspects of student life, including academic conduct, campus behavior, and administrative procedures.

These regulations serve to establish expectations and guidelines for students in areas such as attendance, academic integrity, respectful behavior towards fellow students and faculty, use of university facilities, and adherence to administrative processes. These bylaws are designed to foster a positive and conducive learning environment for all students while upholding the values and standards of the institution. It is essential for students to familiarize themselves with and abide by these bylaws throughout their tenure at the university to ensure a harmonious and productive educational experience.
