Welcome to Chancellor's Dinner and Outstanding Alumni Awards

The University of the Western Cape’s Chancellor’s Dinner and Outstanding Alumni Awards Ceremony is a new highlight on our annual calendar.


  Chancellor's Dinner and Outstanding Alumni Awards


Launched in 2014, this prestigious event serves to honour some of our most deserving alumni – people who used what they learned at UWC to contribute to their fields of study and towards nation building.

This annual event will recognise the outstanding achievements of alumni in their professional life – from culture and sport to business and community service.

The inaugural event was, significantly, held in the 20th year of our democracy. Given the leading role UWC played in developing our country – from being part of the pre-1994 negotiations, to drafting our Constitution and other significant laws, to producing students who lead significant changes in our society – it was only fitting that we paid tribute to alumni who went on to become Rectors and Vice-Chancellors, and who opened the doors of learning to thousands of students marginalized during the apartheid years and beyond.

From 2015 onwards, the Outstanding Alumni Awards will be based on nominations.​
