UCT values donors
15 June 2009
Vice-Chancellor Dr Max Price and UCT's Department of Alumni and Development (DAD) hosted a 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 for 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, Price, Zinzi Mgolodela, and (back) Anthony Farr, Rob Otty and DAD executive director Dr Jim McNamara.
