Message from the Vice-Chancellor to UJ staff – 25 June 2013
Date: Jun 25, 2013 | News
I would like to take this opportunity to bring you up to date on developments related to two matters that have recently put our university in the media spotlight. Firstly, I wish to share with you our excitement at the fact that in the afternoon of 29th June 2013, our Soweto Campus will be the location of USA President Barack Obama’s Pan-African Town Hall event. This event will be broadcast globally on most major television news networks and will be held with youth leaders from South Africa and from across the African continent. Secondly, I will give an update on the matter of the candidacy of Dr Barack Obama for an honorary degree at UJ.
