Change the world


After extensive engagement with the SRC by University management, led by the Vice-Chancellor (VC), it was decided that on-campus academic activities and operations resume tomorrow.

It was agreed this evening that:

  • The DVC: Learning and Teaching will engage the Executive Deans of all faculties to reschedule all tests and assignments that were due this week (2 to 7 September),
  • Alternatives to writing tests in the evening be sought in the interest of student and staff safety,
  • A comprehensive outline of off-campus WiFi connectivity be provided, along with regular updates,
  • The Safety and  Security Task Team be revived and meet fortnightly to continuously reflect on progress in implementing the University’s safety and security strategy,
  • The VC will issue a statement in solidarity with the national movement against Gender Based Violence (GBV), xenophobia and all forms of violent crime,
  • An assessment be completed by Friday regarding the need for private security to complement existing security on-campus arrangements.   

A detailed update on progress in addressing issues raised by students will follow tomorrow.
