The term of office of the current Chancellor, Dr Khotso Mokhele (who has served two consecutive terms), will expire on 03 June 2020. The University has therefore commenced with the process of nominations for the election of a new Chancellor, who will assume duties on 04 June 2020, for a period of five years.
Council, at its meeting held on 14 June 2019, established an Ad-hoc Committee, inclusive of representatives from University stakeholders, to facilitate the process of the nominations for the election of a Chancellor. The Ad-hoc Committee will consider all the nominations and  submit its recommendation to Council, for consideration and decision, on the advice of the Institutional Forum.
In terms of the Statute of the University, only Council members may submit nominations. Members of the University community (staff, students and Alumni) who wish to submit a nomination must familiarise themselves with the requirements for the position and submit any nomination via members of Council.
Please note that the closing date for nominations to be submitted to the office of the Registrar is Friday, 30 December 2019 at 16:30. Late or incomplete nominations will not be accepted or considered.
Kindly contact the Registrar at registrar@ufs.ac.za should you require any further information or clarity.
