25 July 2011

Certified: Mediators graduating at the ceremony included (from left) Timothy Layman, Shaminie Chetty, Kirsten Corin, and Sean Devan.

Mediation has become the cornerstone of UCT's new approach to disputes and conflict resolution and for that, you need people trained in this practice. So the recent graduation of 27 mediators - the university's first - was a milestone occasion. Mediation is a reconciliation process where bruised relationships are confronted rather than avoided for 'peace's sake', explains the UCT Ombud, Zetu Makamandela-Mguqulwa.
