The university’s senior leadership group (SLG) bade farewell to three of its members at a cocktail function on 15 December 2015.
On behalf of the SLG, VC Dr Max Price toasted outgoing registrar Hugh Amoore, retiring executive director of finance Enrico Uliana, and Professor PJ Schwikkard, who is stepping down as the dean of Law.
Price toasted Uliana’s artful contribution to the university, quoting DVC Professor Sandra Klopper, who believes that Uliana regards finance as “an art rather than a science”. He went on to commend Schwikkard for her “courageous empathy”, remarking that her career was punctuated by episodes of empathy shown to discouraged people, and reflecting on the hope that this empathy inspired.
In response to Price’s toasts, Amoore spoke of UCT as “a fragile and delicate plant” that he was confident the SLG would nurture very well.
