Vice-chancellor Dr Max Price, accompanied by DVC Prof Thandabantu Nhlapo and Senior Alumni Manager Lungile Jacobs, embarked on a first-ever UCT Alumni Office visit to the East African countries of Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya.

The main purpose of the visit was to interact with UCT alumni from the region and to bring them up to speed regarding developments at the university. The three meetings, in Dar es Salaam, Kampala and Nairobi, were well attended, and the interaction was excellent. The team came away with helpful information that will assist UCT in strengthening ties with East African alumni. At these meetings, committees were formed to ensure communication channels operate effectively between the UCT Alumni Office and East African alumni.

As the alumni meetings happened after hours, the VC and DVC attended meetings at USHEPiA Partner Universities during the day, where they met with the VCs and academic staff.
