Speaker information

Professor Adam Habib, Vice-Chancellor and Principal of the University of the Witwatersrand

Professor Adam Habib will discuss how, for universities to lead social change, they have to exist within a higher education system that is responsive to the diverse and multiple needs of the economy and society. Any serious analysis of the higher education system over the last two decades must confront the challenge of trade-offs among equally important, competing imperatives, and the contesting philosophies that have come to define the post-apartheid education project at South Africa’s universities.

This event forms part of the African Voices series convened by the UCL African Studies Research Centre.

Supported by UCL Grand Challenges.
