Merridy honoured by European organisation

Merridy Wilson-Strydom

Merridy Wilson-Strydom, Assistant-Director in the Directorate for Institutional Research and Academic Planning (DIRAP) at the University of the Free State (UFS), was named joint winner of the Best Paper Award at the EAIR Valencia Forum 2010 that was held in Valencia, Spain.

EAIR, The European Higher Education Society, is probably globally the largest and strongest association for institutional research at the moment. EAIR is offering the opportunity for young (under 35) professionals and academics working in universities, polytechnics and other higher education institutions to win the “EAIR Best Paper Award”.

The paper was written as part of an accepted proposal for the EAIR annual Forum and is titled Traversing the Chasm from School to University in South Africa: A student perspective.
