Stellenbosch University's recently appointed Rector and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Wim de Villiers has clear vision for the institution under his leadership and the legacy he would like to leave behind.
During an outdoor broadcast from the campus, he spoke to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies about the changes that he wants to implement, including the diversification of academic professors, growing international appeal and other initiatives.
It has been a fairly short honeymoon period, but it has been exciting. I would like Stellenbosch to become increasingly relevant internationally. We want to do things that are locally relevant but globally competitive. I also want to increase diversity of our professors.— Professor Wim de Villiers, Rector and Vice-Chancellor at Stellenbosch University
