Dear students and colleagues
This campus announcement aims to inform members of the University of Cape Town community about:
1. Executive appointments
The recruitment processes for four vacant senior leadership positions are under way.
The selection processes for the deans of the Centre for Higher Education Development and the faculties of Humanities and Health Sciences are yet to commence.
2. Food security programme for students
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Transformation, Professor Loretta Feris, has thanked the UCT community for supporting the UCT Food Security programme, which ran from 29 October to 16 November 2018. She also thanked the suppliers and donors who were involved in the project.
The university will be working on a strategy for a more long-term, sustainable project to help those students who need food provided during the academic year. The intention is that such a project will develop into a programme that is a permanent part of the institution.
3. Launch of the Research Announcement
The Research Office will now be distributing the Research Announcement – a regular email communication that will take much the same format as UCT’s Campus Announcements. These will be delivered to all academic staff and postgraduates at UCT. These announcements will be stored on the Research Support Hub.
4. Demolition of houses on Matopo Road
In preparation for the building works of a new student residence, some existing houses on Matopo Road will be demolished. The demolition is scheduled to start on Friday, 30 November 2018. Occupiers of nearby UCT offices and residences have been notified about the demolition works, since this kind of work is accompanied by unpleasant noise levels and dust.
