Price values donors
09 June 2009
Vice-Chancellor Dr Max Price and UCT's Department of Alumni and Development (DAD) hosted an early morning breakfast for donors on 9 June. Speaking on the topic Funding Higher Education in South Africa: Challenges for the New Government and Universities, Price outlined the necessity of donor support and the vision for UCT's future. "The fee system should be kept in place, but the financial aid scheme needs to be boosted," he argued. "Donor support is a mainstay of that." Attending the breakfast were (front, from left) John Matthews, Dr Max Price, Zinzi Mgolodela, and (back, from left) Anthony Farr, Rob Otty and DAD executive director Dr Jim McNamara.
