Category: Policy Commentary

In line with the mandate to lobby and advocate for the interests of public universities, Universities SA (USAf) engages in conversations with several government departments-especially the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) and related Parliamentary Portfolio Committees, to respond to a number of policy drafts and legislative pieces with implications to the university sector. Since its days as Higher Education South Africa (HESA), USAf has made numerous submissions to the DHET and other government departments on relevant policies and legislative pieces. Some issues necessitate the adoption of position papers.

These responses, submissions or position papers are listed in descending order from those generated during 2017.
