Change the world


In April, the University celebrated the historic inauguration of our Vice-Chancellor Professor Sibongile Muthwa and Chancellor Dr Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi, and entered an exciting new era.

Our new leadership is committed to living up to the responsibility of leading the world’s only university to officially carry Nelson Mandela’s name. We also celebrate the first cohort of honorary doctorates in this new transformative era.

An electronic publication was produced that offers a glimpse into the journey ahead, along with insights into those who are leading the process. The special inaugural publication also includes:

  • The inaugural speeches
  • Features on our honorary doctorates
  • Messages of support
  • A gallery of photographs from the accompanying celebratory events
