2015-06-11

The Council of the University of the Free State (UFS) approved the following matters during its quarterly meeting on Friday 5 June 2015, which took place on the Bloemfontein Campus:

1.    The 2015 - 2020 UFS Strategic Plan.
2.    The extension of the term appointment of Prof Gert van Zyl, Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, for a further five years.
3.    The renaming of JBM Hertzog residence to Beyers Naudé House/Huis Beyers Naudé.
4.    The naming of the new women’s residence on the Bloemfontein Campus as Harmony Residence.
5.    The name of the new hotel on the Bloemfontein Campus as ‘Kovsie-Inn’.

The Council also mandated the UFS management to lead a formal review of the Language Policy through a comprehensive process of consultation with all university stakeholders. The process will include the creation of multiple opportunities and forums for participation, as well as the formation of a university Language Committee which will receive and assess all views on the policy before making recommendations to Management and Council. The review is an open-ended process and three broad outcomes are possible - that the parallel-medium policy remains in place; that minor adjustments are made to the policy; that major changes are made to the existing policy. The Language Committee’s recommendations will be presented to Council at its November 2015 meeting.
