Learning and Teaching

Professor Vivienne Lawack is the Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Academic.

This portfolio focuses on learning and teaching, academic planning, the university in the digital age, as well as community engagement. Central to the academic project is that the students and academic staff members are co-creators of knowledge and that, at the heart of this endeavour, lies excellence and the success of our students with a deep commitment to social justice and being change agents.

The seven faculties are centrally positioned within the portfolio, supported by: READ THE DVC: Academic Reflective Report 2021 HERE
