Multilingualism and integration in the spotlight

The University of the Free State (UFS) recently had a panel discussion on “Language and integration in higher education” as part of the inauguration programme of the new Rector and Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Jonathan Jansen. An international panel of experts discussed the importance of multilingualism in institutions of higher learning as a crucial factor for the achievement of integration. They said for integration to be accomplished, the management of universities had to display absolute commitment to the implementation of the policies of multilingualism.
