CPUT recently welcomed members of its new council at a gala dinner at the Cape Town Hotel School Restaurant.

During the dinner Vice-Chancellor Dr Prins Nevhutalu presented the university’s profile, history and organogram as well as its strategic imperatives stressing that council’s role is integral in taking the university from good to great.

His plan includes boosting the current 17% of staff members with doctorates to around 30% in five years’ time. He also outlined the university’s seven Research Focus Areas and announced that five more research chairs have been approved by the previous council.

He said the university’s priorities for the future will be addressing academic challenges, improving the quality of service to staff and students as well as devising more focused fundraising initiatives.

He said the university should reduce its utility bill, student debt and student drop-out rates, but increase pass and throughput rates.

Registrar Nikile Ntsababa presented an overview of the university’s governance structures and explained their respective functions.

Ntsababa emphasized that the council is the highest decision-making body in the university, while the Senate is the highest decision-making body on academic issues and that the Institutional Forum advises council on issues affecting the institution.
