ALUMNUS ASSOCIATION GATHERING IN LONDON

ALUMNUS ASSOCIATION GATHERING IN LONDON

The annual function of UKZN’s Alumnus Association in Europe – with 75 people attending - was held at the bright and conveniently situated Bankside Gallery overlooking the River Thames on 5 September.

Professor Brenda Gourley, former Vice-Chancellor of the Open University and of the former University of Natal was the Guest Speaker and spoke on “Trends in Higher Education.”  The attendees found her talk most informative and followed with a range of questions for Professor Gourley.

Ms Nomonde Mbadi, Executive Director of Corporate Relations and Mr Fanle Sibisi, President of Convocation also addressed the gathering. Ms Mbadi welcomed everyone on behalf of UKZN and provided an update on the University. Mr Fanle Sibisi spoke on the importance of Convocation and outlined the plans the Convocation Executive have for their term of office.

South African canapés and drinks were served after the talks and guests were able to network and catch-up with fellow graduates. Folders with the latest UKZN information were distributed, allowing attendees to read about their alma mater at their leisure.
