Vice-Chancellor’s New Year’s Message
It gives me great pleasure to welcome the University community back after the annual festive break. I take this opportunity to wish you all a prosperous 2016 and trust that you have been able to enjoy your well-deserved break from academia and that you are energised as you resume your respective duties in the New Year.
I think that it is important that we as a collective continue to espouse the REACH principles in all our interactions and engagements, both internally as well as with our external stakeholders.
A special thank you to all our academics who have been active in finalising the exams concluded late last year as well as those active in generating research and publications over this period. It is this type of dedication that has firmly placed UKZN in the number one spot in terms of research outputs and is growing our teaching reputation.
I thank you all for your commitment, dedication and hard work and I am confident that together we can make great strides in realising the University’s mission and vision.
