Our vision

UCT aspires to become a premier academic meeting point between South Africa, the rest of Africa and the world. Taking advantage of expanding global networks and our distinct vantage point in Africa, we are committed, through innovative research and scholarship, to grapple with the key issues of our natural and social worlds. We are committed both to protecting and encouraging ‘curiosity–driven research’ and research that has a real impact on our communities and environment.
