UFS deeply shocked about the passing away of Prof Russel Botman

Our senior management, staff and students are deeply shocked and saddened by the passing away of Prof Russel Botman, Rector and Vice-Chancellor of Stellenbosch University (SU) during Friday night 27 June 2014.

Our deepest condolences go to his family and friends, especially to his wife Beryl and their children, as well as to the entire community of SU during this difficult time.

Prof Botman was highly regarded by the staff and students of the UFS. "Russel will be remembered for his profound vision of hope for South African education and society and for his deep integrity as a university leader in our turbulent democracy," said the UFS Vice-Chancellor and Rector, Prof Jonathan Jansen.
