2018: A YEAR IN REVIEW | VICE-CHANCELLOR’S OVERVIEW
was pleased to learn that UCT Cycling
elected its first female chair, formed
a women’s racing team and launched
a cycling scholarship programme in
2018. These strides offer an important

At the end of the year, women
also held nine of the 15 positions
in the new 2018/19 Students’
Representative Council, while women
students received top honours at the
2018 Student Leadership Awards.
They included Sarina Mpharalala,
who won the Vice-Chancellor’s

who received the Deputy ViceChancellor’s Award.

that so many UCT research projects
seek to answer practical questions
about how we can improve lives. For
example, civil engineering student
Suzanne Lambert and her supervisor,
Dr Dyllon Randall, a senior lecturer
in water quality engineering, made a
significant contribution to research
