The University of Cape Town (UCT) has announced that it will change the names of several landmark buildings on its campuses.
UCT Vice chancellor Max Price says the decision is in an effort to address decolonisation at the institution.
One of the key dimensions of transformation is what we call institutional climate. What does it feel like to be on campus? Does it feel like a white or colonial campus? Is it inclusive?— Dr Max Price, UCT Vice chancellor
According to Price, changing the names of some iconic buildings and spaces does not erase history.
The university has invited students, staff and alumni to identify building names that are offensive and submit alternative names.
One of the more popular buildings to be considered in the extensive process is the central Jameson Memorial Hall on upper campus.
