While much of the country took a day off on Wednesday, UCT's December 2009 graduations hardly took its foot off the gas.
The Faculty of Commerce and the Faculty of Engineering & the Built Environment hosted its second ceremonies for the week on Wednesday, 16 December. One of the highlights of the Commerce ceremony was the Distinguished Teacher Award that was made to Carla Fourie for her outstanding teaching in the faculty's Education Development Unit.
Yesterday morning the Faculty of Humanities also staged the second of its three graduation ceremonies for the week, presenting a Distinguished Teacher Award to Associate Professor Melissa Steyn of the Department of Sociology (in the picture, presented to her by VC Dr Max Price).
And on Thursday afternoon, the Faculty of Commerce capped a few hundred more graduates at its third and final ceremony, including Anglican Archbishop Thabo Makgoba who brought his doctorate in business administration to a formal close.
Predecessor Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu was on hand to present Makgoba with his academic ribbon. In turn, Professor Rob Dorrington received his UCT Fellows Award at the event.
UCT has two more graduation ceremonies lined up for the week. At 10h00 on Friday, 18 December, the Faculty of Humanities will have its third ceremony for the week, while the Faculties of Health Sciences, Law and Science will round things off with a combined ceremony at 15h00.
