Change the world

New Name

30/05/2017

Signage

The removal of the NMMU sign from the main building is the first physical indicator of our move towards becoming Nelson Mandela University. The old sign is now being refurbished to accommodate the new logo in preparation for the official launch. 

New Name Conversations

More than 200 staff members have joined lively small group discussions to examine the kind of University we should become in living the legacy of Nelson Mandela.

The process has unearthed some excellent ideas, highlighted areas of resonance between the iconic statesman and our new generation university, and also raised key areas of concern for staff. These trends, ideas and issues will assist in informing our proposed new identity and be shared in more detail at a later stage.

Final extra sessions

To accommodate staff members who were unable to attend the initial New Name Conversations, four final sessions are now being offered:

  • Wednesday 7 June: 9.30am to 11am CSL Seminar Room, Admin Block, North Campus
  • Thursday 8 June: 9.30am to 11am CSL Seminar Room, Admin Block, North Campus   
  • Tuesday 13 June: 9.30am to 11am CSL Seminar Room, Admin Block, North Campus   
  • Wednesday 14 June: 9.30am to 11am: Missionvale Campus. Venue TBC
