| Dear friends, colleagues, students and staff
Fresh from hosting an enormously successful Africa Month, being crowned the Varsity Cup rugby champions and celebrating 20 years of Democracy with a memorable concert
and commemorative event on our rugby fields, we are proud to congratulate the achievements of all of our June graduates. This June, we had a total of 1 508 graduates of which 110 were doctoral graduates. As many of our alumni have become leaders in their fields of expertise, we believe that our latest graduates will do the same.
UCT reached a critical milestone in its admissions policy for 2016 when it was ratified in principle by Council earlier this month. The adjusted policy is expected to help advance the university's redress and diversity goals.
I am pleased to introduce this first issue of UCT News. It is a regular publication that will keep you in touch with UCT's news and developments whether you are on campus or already out in the world making your mark.
You can download the feature stories to read offline by clicking 'View PDF' below, or share it with colleagues and friends by forwarding it to them and asking them to subscribe to our two e-newsletters: UCT News and Research at UCT.
