Student involvement in university management has become an important consideration in higher education institutions. The literature suggests that students who are involved in university affairs tend to be socially and academically integrated into the campus, more likely to complete programs and achieve academic success. Traditionally, students have been involved in Student Union, Student Representative Council, sporting and fraternities on campus. However, should students be more directly involved in university management? This is the question that is addressed in this study. The study reports on students’ views about their involvement in University affairs in a Chinese university. The study found that majority of students believed they should be engaged in all major university decision-making via administration consulting with the student organisations. The paper considers the planning and policy implications of these findings.
