Dr Max Price

Baxter concert hall, 17h30, Monday 19 August 2013

On 19 August 2008, the Vice-Chancellor launched his first term of office with an inspiring inaugural address in Jameson Hall. To mark the completion of Dr Max Price's first term and the start of his second, the Chair of Council at the University of Cape Town, Archbishop Njongonkulu Ndungane, invites you to an event at the Baxter Theatre, where Dr Price will be in conversation with Judge Dennis Davis (a UCT alumnus and professor).

The Vice-Chancellor will reflect on the extent to which the vision expressed in his inaugural lecture has been achieved in the past five years, taking questions and comments from key stakeholders (students, staff, unions, alumni) as well as from the floor.

The Vice-Chancellor will also discuss his renewed vision for his second term and the challenges facing higher education in general and UCT in particular.

Members of the audience, and in particular representatives of students and staff, will be invited to add their comments and pose questions from the floor. It promises to be an engaging, interactive and in-depth discussion on the state of UCT.

Overall there is much to celebrate, and the discussions will be followed by a finger supper and drinks in the foyer.

You are therefore invited to hear the Vice-Chancellor in conversation with Dennis Davis and the UCT community as we reflect on the state of UCT and where we're heading.
