​UNISA Ready for Strategic Partnership with eThekwini Municipality
After more than a year of deliberations, MILE finally secured an engagement with UNISA senior management team, when 10 of UNISAs senior managers led by their Pro Vice Chancellor, Prof. N. Baijnath responded to MILE's request to consider a strategic relationship between the city of Durban and the university.
The day-long deliberations resulted in both parties agreeing in principle to work together in a number of areas of mutual interest. It was enlightening to note the similarities in vision when Prof. Baijnath emphasised role of community engagement as the driver of the development agenda of academia. In agreeing to support Durban as a learning city, both parties agreed to include at least 5 areas of collaboration aligned to the city’s emerging research agenda.
In addition UNISA committed to providing strategic support to the fledgling city- to city learning agenda driven by the UCLGA (United Cities and Local Government in Africa). As an internationally respected academic institution, UNISA also committed to sharing its international linkages and networks with the city.
