Change the world

15/08/2023

Nelson Mandela University will continue with online classes tomorrow (Wednesday, 16 August) in light of a call for national university shutdown.

The student-led call relates mainly to NSFAS-related matters and the impact that this is having on students as captured in a comprehensive University statement

The shift to online learning also includes George Campus which, while not impacted by today’s protests, forms part of the national solidarity shutdown call. 

No shuttles

As a result of classes continuing online, the University’s student shuttle service in both Gqeberha and George will not be operating tomorrow.

Increased security

In addition, extra security is to be deployed and the Public Order Police will be on standby. This is to ensure that staff and students are able to go about their work and studies on campus without fear of intimidation and that all University facilities are protected. A University interdict is in still place should anyone transgress such rights.  

Operations ongoing

While classes have temporarily shifted online, day-to-day operations will continue, along with lab and other critical academic work that is not possible in a virtual space. Libraries on all campuses will also remain open.

Monitoring of situation

The University will be monitoring developments. Line managers are urged to do likewise in keeping with the guidance provided by the Line Manager and Staff Guidelines in Times of Crises protocol.

The safety of staff and students should be our leading priority.

Critical services staff

We expect critical staff to be at work tomorrow. This includes catering, cleaning, horticulture and security staff.

Online support

Staff who may need help as we switch to online classes should contact Helpdesk@mandela.ac.za or call extension 3000. Likewise, should any staff or students experience any form of cyberbullying or intimidation, please contact the Helpdesk.

Communication

Staff and students are encouraged to communicate with each other, especially in times of uncertainty.

The University will endeavour to do likewise, if and when events unfold.
