Rector addresses Humanities Faculty Forum
2009-10-23

The Faculty of the Humanities at the University of the Free State (UFS) recently held its 2009 Faculty Forum on the Main Campus. The Rector and Vice-Chancellor of the UFS, Prof. Jonathan Jansen (pictured), delivered the keynote address in which he lamented the dearth of intellectual debate at the university. His address was focused on ‘the scholarship of teaching’, which he said should be deeply anchored in knowledge and in what it means to be a student. He also said the majority of the 25 NRF-rated scholars that the UFS has advertised for will be placed in the Faculty of the Humanities to make this faculty the strongest in the country. He encouraged the faculty to strive for ‘extraordinary things’. The Forum creates an opportunity for interactive engagement among colleagues in the areas of teaching, learning and research.
