2020 Retirees Recognition

This year we have the privilege of honouring 87 retirees from across the university, including academic and professional, administrative support and service (PASS) staff. It’s an opportunity for us to say a deserved thank you to the staff members who have served UCT for as long as they have, and for their ongoing commitment to building the university we are proud to be a part of today.


“This is how universities become great, because people commit to making them great. UCT is strong because you have helped to keep us strong, even during challenging times. Thank you.” – VC Prof Phakeng
