University of the Future: call for ideas

04 August 2023

Dear colleagues and students

It has been two months since we launched the University of the Future (UoF) project. It aims to create enabling places, spaces, services and functions for the University of Cape Town (UCT) as part of our Vision 2030.

The UoF project steering committee now invites all staff and students to submit ideas to contribute towards shaping UCT’s developmental strategic roadmap. This is an exciting opportunity to rethink, redesign and realign our current spaces and services to be fit for purpose and fit for our future.

The guidelines, requirements, themes and eligibility criteria can all be found on the UoF challenge ideas webpage. The committee will be embarking on a university wide roadshow between August and October 2023 to assist colleagues and students with conceptualising their ideas.

Ideas should to be submitted by Tuesday, 31 October 2023.

Ideas which the committee selects for further development will be showcased at an exhibition in early 2024. Following the exhibition a further set of curated proposals will then be prepared for submission to relevant UCT committees and council subcommittees for implementation.

The UoF steering committee looks forward to considering your creative and collaborative ideas.
