As we press on towards the implementation of the new strategy 2021-2025, we continue to do our best to engage and consult all stakeholders. In last week’s communique I have addressed the questions regarding what we are changing, why the change, when is the envisaged change, the risk of not changing, what’s in store for me as an individual employee of the University of Venda as well as how individuals and teams will be impacted by the implementation of the new strategy 2021-25.

This week, I would like to shift gears and introduce the 2021-25 strategic philosophy, vision and mission of the University of Venda. I would like to invite you to familiarize yourselves with the strategy and understand the direction our institution is taking as we engage further to ensure the smooth implementation of the strategy.

Kind regards

Dr Bernard Nthambeleni
Vice-Chancellor and Principal
