At this time of celebration

we, the members of the University of Cape Town,

reaffirm our mission:

to nurture rational and creative thought and free enquiry;

to strive for excellence in teaching and research;

to educate for life; and

to address the challenges of our society.

We undertake to advance these ideals

in a spirit of freedom and responsibility

and through consultation and debate.

We celebrate our founders, benefactors and predecessors:

those who have built the fabric and nourished the values of UCT.
