New Community Service policy for UFS

After an inclusive consultation process conducted since 2005 with a wide variety of partners, staff and other experts, the Council of the University of the Free State (UFS) approved a new community service policy.  The new policy will contribute to strengthen the already competitive national position of the UFS as far as community service learning and research is concerned. It will also clearly and academically articulate the stated aspiration of the UFS to become a truly engaged university. 

The technical team responsible for the compilation of the new police are, from the left:  Dr Mabel Erasmus (Senior Lecturer:  Community Service Development and Implementation), Rev Kiepie Jaftha (Chief Director:  Community Service) and Mr Willem Ellis (independent consultant).
