“The unique context and ethos of the University of the Western Cape is reflected in the high level of support and benevolence provided by students, colleagues and members of the executive. This is what makes me ‘make the road by walking’ in everything I do.” - Prof. Monwabisi Ralarala, Dean of the Faculty of Arts.

“It's been an overwhelming experience ever since I joined the UWC Library team.I have been exposed to a lot of activities within my unit such as taking part in research seminars and workshops, libchat guidelines, creating online modules and web page development. The regular meetings that one attends for my unit has played a huge role in defining the library`s objectives and also understanding the key components of the unit and that of the university.

The support from my line manager as well as the unit team has made things more easy for me to adapt and see the bigger picture of the university.” - Mr Mlungisi Thusi, Research Support Librarian: Library Services.

“Joining UWC has been one of the best decisions in my professional career. From the efficiency of the professional support staff to the collegiality of fellow academics; UWC offers a robust research intensive culture and provides an intellectually stimulating environment for all to flourish.” - Prof. John-Mark Iyi, Faculty of Law.
