Dear colleagues and students
Applications and nominations are open and encouraged for the 2021 Social Responsiveness Awards. Recipients will be announced in December and will be celebrated as part of the April 2022 graduation ceremonies.
Social responsiveness is core to the work of UCT as an engaged institution. It is achieved through our core work of teaching, research, and service to society. Our annual awards recognise the ways in which our staff and students play an active development role in our cultural, economic, political, scientific and social environment.
Recipients can be academic, or professional, administrative support and service (PASS) departments, and can be individuals or groups. All staff and students are eligible to apply or be nominated.
