​The Stellenbosch University Transformation Office hereby invites you to this year’s Transformation Indaba themed ​​#StelliesWhereAreYou. We would like to foster robust discussions around transformation at our institution and will host leaders from all relevant departments to engage with students and staff.

The keynote address “Transformation in Higher Education in South Africa: Current victories, opportunities and challenges" will be presented by Professor Loretta Feris, DVC: Transformation and Professor in the Faculty of Law, University of Cape Town. 

On the day, different responsibility centres (see below) will be given an opportunity to present brief overviews of their work – these overviews will be informed by questions brought up in a survey sent out to students and staff which can still be accessed here:
