Celebrate with Us

The University of Fort Hare celebrates 100 years 2016 and to retain our proud reputation as an iconic institution, we need to continue to serve the needs of the people and of the higher education sector of the eastern Cape, we need to offer a standard of education that will make a real difference in developing human capital in the region and thus aspire to continue to be a relevant skills and knowledge producer, as well as “thought leader” for our broader society, as we ventures towards its centenary year, 2016.

This aspiration is influenced by and must take into account the rapidly changing and increasingly complex post-colonial, post-apartheid and post-industrial society in which we operate. This requires that the University continually builds its organizational capability to adapt to changing conditions in order to remain responsive and relevant. This requires a significant investment in new building infrastructure (lecture theatres, student accommodation staff accommodation, a new library, a post graduate centre.

Vision 2030 is designed to move closer to the realisation of its vision as being an African University, particularly towards our centenary in 2016. The university’s resolve to be a vibrant, equitable and sustainable African university goes beyond mere demographics but shows a conscious effort to be relevant and In relation to the development of Fort Hare it is critical that the university is embedded in a develop-mental model which is highly responsive to regional and national development needs and challenges and can assist the region in producing higher value goods and services, new knowledge in critical areas and contribute to the innovation and integration in and between town and countryside and between local and global systems.
