The Office of Community Engagement facilitated a workshop and book launch attended by NPO partners, PhD students, and university staff from various departments, on 11 and 12 March 2015 on the Bloemfontein Campus.  The book entitled Knowledge as Enablement between higher education and the third sector, written by Prof Mabel Erasmus from the Service Learning office and Dr Ruth Albertyn from Stellenbosch University, was the centre of discussion, during which the authors opened the floor to the audience to do a chapter-by-chapter analysis and discussion session.

The book makes a significant contribution to research concerning third-sector organisations, and highlights the value which they bring into engagement work.  Dr Choice Makhetha, Vice Rector: External Relations, officiated at the book launch. She applauded the valuable research and hard work that had gone into the project. Some of the workshop topics include ethics and knowledge sharing, technology and communication, social entrepreneurship and the challenges of shared value systems faced by NPOs.
