Internationalisation since January 2017.
UCT Chancellor Graça Machel invested
Professor Phakeng with her robe of
office at a ceremony on 13 December
that was held as part of a special
graduation in Memorial Hall. The vicechancellor celebrated her robing in the
company of some 100 inspirational

guests were vice-chancellors and
deputy vice-chancellors from South
Africa’s universities, as well as other
dignitaries, donors and alumni – and

the Class of 1968. “You have left in my
hands an incredible gem, a gift of sorts,
with the potential to change lives and
change society for the better. It’s my
deepest intention and commitment to
further your wonderful work to advance
UCT to ensure its sustainability for
generations to come,” said Phakeng in
acknowledgement of the work of UCT’s
