Ties that bind

14 February 2011

UCT has strengthened its relationship with Makerere University in Uganda, with the two institutions signing a Memorandum of Understanding recently. Makerere is a long-standing UCT partner, specifically on the University Science, Humanities & Engineering Partnerships in Africa (USHEPiA) project, but now the partnership has been pushed up a level to provide a formal platform for developing new initiatives. "Makerere has chosen UCT as an institution with which they want to develop key collaborations around research and capacity building, as well as staff and student exchange," explained Lara Hoffenberg, manager of mobility and links at the International Academic Programmes Office. The agreement enhances the Afropolitan goal of UCT, and will be an asset to both universities, says Hoffenberg.
