The UP SRC would like to express its gratitude in relation to the installation of the Braille Blocks that have been installed here at the University of Pretoria Hatfield campus. We understand that this is an initiative that was planned to roll out gradually from the Hatfield campus, and out to external campuses. We would like to remind the University of that commitment, which was made in 2014. Students who are visually impaired and are studying at our external campuses remain in need of these indicators which would allow for them to navigate around respective campuses. As we understand this is an initiative that thrives towards a barrier free and conducive University space for all our students, the SRC would like to encourage the University to see to it that the implementation of these Braille Blocks is extended to our external campuses as soon as possible. This is an issue that ought to be taken seriously as it directly speaks to the punctuality and by extension, the academic access and success of the visually impaired students. The SRC Transformation and Student Success Officer has conducted a survey, and through it, the office learned that majority of our students are not aware what Braille Blocks are and what purpose do they serve. As such, this Office has embarked in a Disability Awareness Campaign. Below is a poster which explains what Braille Blocks are, and also makes mention of some points of caution that we can look out for.
