Public consultation on MT Steyn statue begins with exhibition


In line with the UFS Strategic Plan 2018-2022 and the Integrated Transformation Plan (ITP), the University of the Free State (UFS) strives to distinguish itself as an institution that will pursue the delivery of excellent quality graduates and knowledge of the region, the continent, and the globe through academic excellence, diversity, inclusivity, and through innovative and transformative thought. The ITP shows the commitment of the UFS to widen the scope and radically accelerate transformation at the university.

One of the work streams of the ITP is concerned with Names, Symbols, and Spaces. Topical at the moment is the review of the MT Steyn statue, which is situated in front of the Main Building on the Bloemfontein Campus. A public exhibition during the Vrystaat Arts Festival will ensure that the review process and the statue itself remains the topic of informed intellectual conversations during the time allotted for public consultation regarding this statue.
