UCT recognises that the transformation process is ongoing but recent years have seen the institution reach important milestones, including:

  • the renaming of Memorial Hall to Sarah Baartman Hall
  • the recuration of artworks across campus, such as in the Molly Blackburn and Bremner buildings, reflecting a more inclusive and diverse art collection
  • 25 UCT staff enabled with an introduction of South African Sign Language 
  • the introduction of a Khoekhoegowab language course
  • a food security programme that provides packed lunches for students
  • the appointment of 17 young, black South African lecturers through the New Generation of Academics Programme (nGAP) since its inception in 2015.
