Realising transformation

UCT is committed to a vision of transformation that advances non-racialism, diversity and inclusiveness. This involves creating an institutional culture that is affirming for all who come to the university, a working environment that respects the dignity of all staff, and a demographic profile that reflects the democratic transition that has taken place in the country.

The university is actively engaged in producing the next generation of academics, leaders, intellectuals, and professionals, who are more diverse in demographic (including gender) representation. The transformation of the professorate, which provides the intellectual leadership of the university, is a key strategic priority, as is ensuring that students academically eligible to study at UCT are not denied opportunities because of financial means.
