North-West University announces new chairperson and deputy chairperson of its Council on 23 June 2022
During its meeting on 23 June 2022, the North-West University (NWU) Council elected a new chairperson and deputy chairperson.
Some universities are seen as ivory towers, we do not want to be seen as such. We want to be accessible to communities and be seen as a solutions provider in our environs. We don’t want to just disseminate knowledge, we also want to learn things from the people in our communities. It would be great to learn how they solve problems so that we can study that.
Our focus is to be a student-centered university with academic freedom, innovation, and integrity. We want to evolve as an ICT institution, taking into consideration our new mandate.
We are trying to restructure our university by following these steps. Recreate the institution as a collegiate university which will replace the faculty system. We will have the College of Computing Systems and Technology, College of Communication Engineering, and the College of Business.
