"Few conversations beat those in which you tell a young adult that their tuition fees are covered, and covered for the next five years," comments Pauline Alexander, recipient of the Vice-Chancellor's Medal in recognition of her important contribution to developing a new model for alumni relationships and fundraising for UCT.
Alexander joined UCT in 2002 and serves as development and marketing manager for the Faculty of Law.
UCT Vice-Chancellor Dr Max Price said Alexander had become an integral part of almost every aspect of life in the faculty, recognising her "dedicated and innovative work – specifically the way she has established and maintained a loyal community of alumni who continue to give back to the university year after year".
The Vice-Chancellor's Medal was instituted during the 1980s. It is awarded, at the vice-chancellor's discretion, to someone who has made an important contribution to the university.
