Africa Month at UCT


During the month of May we commemorate the establishment, in 1963, of the Organisation of African Unity – a precursor to the African Union – which made Africa a pioneer in continental unity and nation building. As a celebration of this moment, UCT will be participating in a series of virtual symposiums on “Africa’s innovations in the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic” to discuss pertinent governance and developmental issues in Africa, towards the formulation of policy recommendations. The university also curated responses from across the university community about what it is that makes us African, and how this informs what we do.
