Welcome to Stellenbosch University


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Welcome to the School of Public Leadership​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ (SPL)

At the SPL we prepare graduates for leading roles in public and civic organisations to tackle development and governance challenges. Our graduates are equipped with the knowledge, competencies and values required to build sustainable African societies within a rapidly changing and com​plex world. Emphasis is placed on the ability of graduates to craft and facilitate an open civic public realm wherein dialogue and contestation can thrive thanks to a culture of tolerance, modesty, solidarity and compassion.
