Sol Plaatje University (SPU)
Sol Plaatje University: The first fully constituted Council of the Sol Plaatje University was inaugurated on 19 August 2014. This was both an important milestone and a proud moment in this early stage of the development of the University. For the first year of the life of the University, the governance function was in the hands of a five-person Interim Council which was very ably chaired by Ms Jenny Glennie. The other members were Dr Yvonne Muthien, Mr Abel Madonsela, Mr Maruping Lekwene and Prof Vishnu Padayachee. The installation of the full Council signals the University entering the next phase of increasing maturity of its internal academic management and governance structures.
