UKZN hosts Stakeholder Relations Breakfast
UKZN hosted a Stakeholders’ Breakfast to forge deeper relationships with education officials from various districts in KwaZulu-Natal.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Teaching and Learning, Professor Renuka Vithal, outlined UKZN’s research and teaching and learning achievements, saying they were particularly notable as the University had gone through a “major merger” just over a decade ago.
Vithal emphasised that UKZN put great effort on ensuring the success of its students. ‘Every student matters,’ she said, indicating that the University was committed to social development, justice and gender equality.
Vithal paid particular attention to the strides UKZN had made on its language policy, saying that it planned to be a ‘space where students can engage in whatever language they feel comfortable in’.
Executive Director: Corporate Relations Division, Mr Lesiba Seshoka, encouraged stakeholders to interact with the University on matters they needed clarification on. He commended those who run career exhibitions as UKZN viewed them as "ambassadors".
Programme Director and Director of University Relations, Ms Normah Zondo, said she trusted the meeting provided a clear indication of UKZN’s offerings and exciting new developments in teaching and learning. She echoed Seshoka saying that exhibitions allowed the University to ‘reach out to the wider community’.
Zondo thanked all those who contributed to the success of the event.
