About US

Transformation in higher education is conceptualized around the principles expressed in the White Paper on Higher Education and Training of 1997. These are Equity and redress; Democratization; Development; Quality; Effectiveness and efficiency; Academic freedom; Institutional autonomy; and Public accountability. Based on these, the Transformation and Social Inclusion Office is tasked with:

    • Engaging university members in order to advance the values of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, more specifically human dignity, the attainment of equality, the advancement of human rights and freedoms and the promotion of a non-discriminatory university environment;
    • Developing and recommending development of policies that promote social justice, inclusion and redress;
    • Monitoring university policies and practices and making recommendations to promote equitable access and success in recruitment and academic programmes; and
    • Liaising with internal and external stakeholders on the status of transformation in the university.
