Office for lnclusivity and Change (OIC)

The Office for Inclusivity & Change (OIC) is housed in the Office of the Vice-Chancellor and reports directly to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Transformation. It provides institutional responses to transformation, sexual and gender-based violence, disability and cultural change.

Vision and mission

The vision of the OIC is to build, develop and foster an environment where everyone feels included and change is respected, encouraged and celebrated.

Our mission is to provide effective support and encourage collaborative leadership at the University of Cape Town through evidence-led inclusivity programmes. Inclusivity is generated through a multipronged approach that focuses on curriculum, disability services, institutional cultural change, sexual and gender-based violence prevention policy and research.
