2018: A YEAR IN REVIEW | VICE-CHANCELLOR’S OVERVIEW
EXECUTIVE APPOINTMENTS
One of Council’s most important
functions is to make senior leadership
appointments and to ensure smooth
leadership transition. Among others,
Council approved the appointments
of Dr Reno Morar in the newly
created position of chief operating
officer and Associate Professor
Linda Ronnie as the new dean of the
Faculty of Commerce. (See page 6
for further information on executive
appointments.)
HUMAN RESOURCES
Council approved retrospectively the
change in the policy on permanent
appointments of professional,
administrative support and
service (PASS) staff in payclasses
1 to 8. In terms of the revised policy,
a coalition of unions will be invited to
appoint one union representative and
an alternate (from a pool of unionnominated trained representatives)
to serve on selection committees for
the affected posts.
MAYOSI INQUIRY
Following inputs from stakeholder
representatives, Council approved
the selection of members for an
independent panel of inquiry to
review the issues raised surrounding
the passing of Professor Bongani
Mayosi on 27 July 2018. The
members of the panel are Professor
Thandabantu Nhlapo (Chair),
Dr Somadoda Fikeni, Professor
Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela and
Ms Nomfundo Walaza. The panel
in residence fees of 7.3%. The
international term fee increase
was approved at 8%. In 2018 UCT
achieved a 3.7% surplus on its
recurrent operating income – against
an annual Council target of 3%, which
allows UCT to fund longer-term
projects and support institutional
priorities. The next largest surplus in
recent years was achieved in 2014
when a 2.8% surplus was recorded.
