• Changing mind-sets, transforming research

    Jon Spaull

Stellenbosch University was the birthplace of apartheid and much of its research during the apartheid era was focused on maintaining white minority rule. Its first black vice-chancellor, Russel Botman, has introduced a new culture to the university in which research plays a central role in Africa’s development.

This is part of the Africa’s PhD Renaissance series funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
