New Dean of Learning and Teaching appointed 

Dr Phumeza Kota-Nyati has been appointed as the Dean: Learning and Teaching from 1 July 2021. 
She will be responsible for leading the work of the LT Collab and the conceptualisation and implementation of key strategies to enable success and development, for students and staff.
To date, she has been serving the University as Director of Emthonjeni Student Wellness. Phumeza has been registered as a Counselling Psychologist since 1999. 
Her lecturing career extends over a period of 12 years at the University of Port Elizabeth, Vista University, and Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University. 
Her experience within the different fields of Psychology ranges from employee assistance work and HIV coordination (NMBM), student counselling services (CPUT), Human Resources (Telkom SA), student development (Coega Development Corporation) and private practice. 
When asked about her new role, Phumeza commented as follows - “As we move our learning and teaching agenda forward in a volatile and complex environment, we need to continually reflect on our practices and advance towards transformative learning and teaching. This process is not necessarily a smooth one as we might need to be disruptive, allowing for critical evaluation, exploring varied ways of awareness raising, knowing, and doing. As co-constructors in learning and teaching we will achieve success when we take our students and colleagues along with us in the spirit of collaboration”. 
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Dr Phumeza Kota-Nyati on her appointment.
Prof Cheryl Foxcroft
(DVC: Learning and Teaching)

Alumni speakers at NMB Leadership Summit 2021

It is always a pleasure to share information about our alumni sharing their expertise. Three Mandela Alumni Achiever Awards recipients, Russell Raath, Johan de Nysschen and Johan Jooste, as well as alumnus Shawn Govender will be speakers at the 2021 Nelson Mandela Bay Leadership Summit and two of them have already registered as Mandela Alumni Connect members.
The Nelson Mandela Bay Leadership Summit is a collaborative partnership between Nelson Mandela University Business School and the MIKS Foundation aims to assemble thought leaders to share views and opinions on leadership intelligence to navigate adversity and disruption. The preferred outcome is an effective Leadership Ecosystem in organizations and society. Not only does it combine culture, interactions, relationships, and processes within our organizations, but it is also diagnostic. To change the world we need leaders for tomorrow.
This year's theme covers Leadership Skills to inform the Great Reset of Society: From global grief to hope. The Great Reset in the economy and society as result of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the accelerated thrust into the Fourth Industrial Revolution, has been a call for the courage of change. ‘Great Reset’ implies that we boldly find new ways of living, working and doing business.
