11 May 2018 | Campus Announcement

Dear member of the UCT community


The Institutional Reconciliation and Transformation Commission (IRTC) has extended the deadline for phase two of the hearings to 12 May 2018. According to the IRTC’s terms of reference, phase two pertains to “institutional culture, transformation, decolonisation, discrimination, identity, disability, labour relations and any other matters that the university community has raised over the years or may wish to raise”. In addition, the IRTC has identified the three themes listed below and has also decided to include a ‘general’ theme:

  • gender-based violence
  • accommodation
  • security.

Please ensure that submissions do not exceed 15 pages. All submissions of four or more pages should include an executive summary pertaining to each theme. All representations/submissions to the IRTC should be submitted to Candice Amon ( on 074 505 4159 by no later than 12 May 2018. The submissions can also be sent via your steering committee representatives. Unlike phase one, in which hearings were confidential, phase two will provide for open hearings (unless individuals request otherwise), which all will be welcome to attend.
