UFS awards shield of honour


The University of the Free State (UFS) awarded a shield of honour last week to Mr Ludo Helsen during its autumn graduation ceremony. He was honoured for his involvement in various projects on the relationship between language and culture and the consolidation of a dynamic democratic dispensation. Among these is the Multilingual Information Development Programme (the MIDP), which is aimed at institutionalising a multilingual dispensation within the Free State Provincial Government. Mr Helsen is a member of the provincial council of Antwerp, Belgium. This was the first time since 2004 that a shield of honour was awarded. Here are, from the left: Prof. Theo du Plessis, Director of the Unit for Language Management at the UFS, and Mr Helsen.
