UWC Campus Update - 25 October 2016

The University Executive Management has been receiving various queries, including an email from#UWCFeesWillFall, about management’s participation in a march for decolonised free education for all to Parliament on Wednesday, 26 October 2016.

UWC’s Executive has decided not to participate in the march to Parliament on Wednesday, 26 October 2016 for the following reasons:  

  1. The University’s position as contained in our submission to the Commission on the Funding of Higher Education and as articulated several times is that it supports free education for the poor and financial support for the “missing middle”. (please receive the submission here
  2. We remain convinced that a multi-stakeholder engagement will provide an opportunity to dialogue on the different understandings of free education as well as all the other issues.

Staff who choose to participate, are welcome to do so on an individual and voluntary basis.

Yours sincerely

UWC Executive Management
