UCT’s strategic goals are informed by the university’s values:

The strategic plan for the University of Cape Town

The strategic plan for the University of Cape Town highlights the interventions we believe we need to make in order to develop UCT in particular ways over the next five to 10 years.

The five key strategic goals are:

  • To forge a new inclusive identity that reflects a more representative profile of students and staff, and the cultures, values, heritage and epistemologies of the diversity of UCT’s staff and students
  • To promote UCT as a vibrant and supportive intellectual environment that attracts and connects people from all over the world and advances the status and distinctiveness of scholarship in Africa
  • To advance UCT as a research-intensive university that makes a distinctive contribution to knowledge, locally and globally
  • To renew and innovate in teaching and learning – improving student success rates, broadening academic perspectives, stimulating social consciousness and cultivating critical citizens
  • To enhance the scope, quality and impact of engaged scholarship with an emphasis on addressing development and social justice
