Emeritus Professor Martin West was awarded an honorary doctorate in literature, in particular for his role in the university's governance and transformation during a turbulent period of transition.
West retired from UCT in 2008 after serving with distinction for 17 years as a deputy vice-chancellor, and later as vice-principal. He served under four vice-chancellors, and made vital contributions to changing governance at UCT during the first decade of a democratic South Africa.
