周一, 7月18日, the North-West University (菠菜信誉导航收录站) joins the rest of South Africa and the world in celebrating Nelson Mandela International Day – an annual international day in honour of our country’s first democratically elected president. 联合国于7月18日正式宣布, 纳尔逊·曼德拉的生日, 2009年11月国际曼德拉日. The focus of the Nelson Mandela International Day 2022 is food security and climate change with the tagline “在你所处的位置，用你所拥有的，做你能做的.”
据南非统计, in 2020, 大约23,6%的南非人受到中度至重度粮食不安全的影响, 而几乎14,9%的人面临严重的粮食不安全问题. 林波波河(93,6%)和Gauteng (84,0%) had the highest proportion of households that reported adequate food access while North-West (64,0%)和北角(66,5%) provinces had the lowest proportions of households that had adequate food access and therefore can be seen as the least food secure. 有一些人在白菜大全论坛999的社区里, 白菜大全论坛999的邻居, 白菜大全论坛999的兄弟, 还有经常饿着肚子上床睡觉的姐妹, 或者最有可能很快这么做, 这是对白菜大全论坛999国家和白菜大全论坛999其他人的控诉吗.
纳尔逊·曼德拉基金会, 它是“纳尔逊·曼德拉一生和时代的守护者”, calls on all of us to participate in activities that include planting and growing community and home-based gardens, 支持水果和乡土树木种植, 并提高人们对粮食安全和气候变化之间联系的认识. The threat of climate change to our country and the region cannot be overemphasised. The International Monitory Fund (IMF) warns that Sub-Saharan Africa is the region in the world most vulnerable to climate change, 与气温上升, 海平面上升, and rainfall anomalies increasing the frequency and intensity of natural disasters. We have witnessed some of these disasters in some parts of our country recently.
因此，我敦促大家 members of the 菠菜信誉导航收录站 community to participate in the Nelson Mandela International Day activities and pragmatically be involved in the promotion of food security and awareness of climate change. 我承认，这些对白菜大全论坛999所有人来说都是具有挑战性的问题, 但正如曼德拉总统所说, “在事情完成之前，似乎总是不可能.” Let us do whatever we can, with whatever we have, wherever we are, on 7月18日 2022.
Regarding our long-term targeted interventions and responses to these issues and the agriculture and the agri-processing sector in general, we have prioritised partnerships and collaborations with local and international role-players. The Faculty of 自然与农业科学 and the 社区参与 portfolio will play a key role in these programmes. 详情将很快与您分享.
除了白菜大全论坛99920日的公告外 3月 2022 (see below) on the process followed in accordance with the relevant prescripts that led to the appointment Dr Bismark Tyobeka as principal and vice-chancellor, we now wish to provide information on the role of structures involved in the process to ensure the relevant participation and opportunity for input.
- 根据 办公室干事的任命规则在美国，议会必须成立一个遴选小组 就委任的候选人向立法会提出建议.
This panel was duly established by Council on 9 February 2022 and consisted of members of Council, 参议院和机构论坛. 如2022年3月20日所示, at this time Tyobeka博士 had already recused himself from all Council and Council Committees engagements.
- 校规订明大学管理委员会 (UMC) must advise on the formulation of the minimum requirements and the position profile of the position of vice-chancellor.
在2022年1月19日UMC的第一次会议上, the management committee had the opportunity to consider the minimum requirements and the position profile, 并提出建议.
The panel largely agreed with the advice of the UMC but considered it prudent that the vice-chancellor fulfils the role of chief executive and therefore would need to display the necessary business acumen. 在此背景下, the panel indicated as minimum requirement a proven track record in professional leadership in regard of which business experience and exposure to higher education would be an advantage.
The panel approved the agreed-upon minimum requirements and position profile and instructed the placement of the advertisement on relevant platforms.
- The professional fit for this position was determined after consideration of the profile, 心理评估, 面试, 转换, 对案例研究的回应, and the presentation made by the candidates on the following topic “Taking into consideration where the 菠菜信誉导航收录站 is currently, 你会怎么做呢?”
根据白菜大全论坛999章程和规则, the 参议院和机构论坛 are required to express an opinion on the suitability of shortlisted candidates for appointment. 这样表达的意见只是整个评选过程的一部分. The opinions expressed by these structures on the suitability for appointment of Tyobeka博士 were as follows: the Institutional Forum (a broad and representative structure involving various stakeholders) indicated an 80% suitability for appointment, while the Senate (an academic governance structure mainly comprising academics) indicated a 40% suitability for appointment.
规则3.1.14 prescribes that the selection panel recommends the appointment of a suitable candidate to Council. 在对所有相关因素进行充分和彻底的考虑之后, 评选小组采用协商一致的方式, resolved on 14 3月 2022 to recommend the candidature of Dr Bismark Tyobeka as Vice-Chancellor to Council for consideration and approval.
- 2022年3月17日, Council was fully apprised of all the relevant facts in accordance with the Statute and the Rules, 来考虑一次约会.
The Council was also fully apprised of the opinions expressed by 参议院和机构论坛. Focus was placed on the importance of the prescript of para 42(1) of the Statute indicating the role that the VC has to fulfil as chief executive and accounting officer of the university and responsible for its management and administration.
等, Council was advised that 20% of the position profile relates to academic matters while the rest of the profile relates to sustainability, 基础设施及财务管理, 加强战略关系, 管理学生和员工的价值主张, 社区参与以及领导力, 转换, 公司治理和合规.
Council was also made fully aware of the disclosure of Tyobeka博士 during 面试 in providing the context to a media article published in 2015 in Mail & 《菠菜信誉导航收录站》. It is important to emphasise that Tyobeka博士 has been a member of Council since 2014 and this issue was not raised as a concern before, 即使在2017年和2020年再次当选委员长时也是如此.
根据白菜大全论坛999规约, Council must appoint the vice-chancellor by a two-third majority by means of a secret ballot process. 投票结果是78%的人赞成任命Tyobeka博士.
The 菠菜信誉导航收录站 is confident that the required process had been concluded in accordance with all prescripts and that the input of all relevant stakeholders had been duly taken into account.
The university looks forward to being managed through the leadership of Dr Bismark Tyobeka.
- The process of selection and appointment had been managed in strict accordance with the relevant rules (the 菠菜信誉导航收录站 Statute as well as the Rules for the appointment of office bearers).
等, the Rules for the appointment of office bearers prescribe that any person who is a candidate for appointment is required to recuse him-/herself from all preparatory and decision-making procedures.
This rule had been applied consistently in regard to all internal members who had been candidates for the position.
- 立法会委任VC的程序于2月3日展开, 2022, 泰别卡博士宣布，关于这个空缺职位可能存在冲突. Since then he had been recused from all Council and Council-committee activities. He resigned as member of Council on 17 3月 after he was informed of his appointment as vice-chancellor.
The Council and its selection panel were aware of a possible conflict of interest that may arise during the process and accordingly decided to source independent legal advice. 法律咨询表明, 考虑到上述规则和劳动法的规定, 不允许Tyobeka博士申请该职位, 是不被允许的，是不公平的歧视吗.
因此, to require Tyobeka博士 to first resign as chairperson of council before applying for the vacancy of vice-chancellor had no legal basis or justification, and that the recusal from the process of recruitment and appointment had been in accordance with all relevant prescripts.
- 2022年2月9日, the Exco of Council established a selection panel in terms of the mentioned rules, 由安理会成员组成, 参议院和机构论坛. 该职位于2022年2月15日在内部和外部发布了招聘广告.
- 在完成规定的过程, the selection panel recommended a candidate to Council during its meeting on 17 3月 2022. 彻底的讨论后, 审议一系列有关事项并进行无记名投票, Council voted in excess of the required two-third majority in favour of the appointment of Tyobeka博士.
根据白菜大全论坛999的法规, 理事会将在2022年6月23日的下次会议上选举新的主席. Until such time, Mr Bert Sorgdrager, deputy chairperson of Council, will act as chairperson.
The 大学管理 has been in discussions with student leaders since the beginning of the academic year, 关于影响一些学生和未来学生的问题. 这些问题包括注册、资金、住宿和基础设施.
学校管理层很欣赏学生领导的方式, especially the SRC and the SCCs have registered their concerns and offered proposals regarding some of the matters.
周二, 3月8日, some student formations at the Mahikeng Campus have chosen to block entry into the campus and making it impossible for the staff to service students, 和其他学生继续他们的学业. 执法机构正在处理公共暴力问题, and we hope that the situation will be under control soon to enable the academic programme to continue. We remain concerned about the safety of our staff and students; thus, 鼓励员工继续在家工作, 让学生继续远程学习. 白菜大全论坛999知道你们中的一些人在校外工作时有网络连接问题, 白菜大全论坛999会尽一切可能提供协助. Students with connectivity problems are encouraged to liaise with their faculties. 员工可以联系他们的经理进行实际安排.
The 大学管理 met with the student leaders and various formations on 9, 2022年3月10日和11日. 令人遗憾的是, the meetings could not resolve the substantive matters because the student leaders felt management does not take their issues seriously. The acting vice-chancellor attended the meeting of 10 3月 physically in Mahikeng. 今天的会议, 3月11日由于学生们走出会场而崩溃了, partly because they demanded the physical presence of the acting vice-chancellor who was attending a ministerial meeting in Pretoria. This meeting was scheduled as a hybrid meeting and all delegates accepted the appointment as such. 尽管未能与学生领袖分享解决方案, 管理部门可以使用许多解决方案来响应.
Below is a summary of the issues raised and management’s actions and resolutions to date:
The enrolment plan determines the number of students the university can register. The enrolment plan is an agreement/contract that all public universities in South Africa sign with the Department of Higher 教育 and Training regarding the number of students each university is allowed to register in a specific year. 在2022年招生计划方面, 白菜大全论坛999预计注册12256名首次进入(FTEN)的学生. To date we have registered 12 610 contact and distance FTEN students which still falls within the stretched target, 但是白菜大全论坛999不能再超过了.
The 大学管理 notes the concerns from the student leaders regarding the learners/applicants who have received acceptance/admission letters but could not register. We must emphasise that the letters of acceptance that are sent to all qualifying applicants also contain conditions that must be met for registration. 考虑到这件事的重要性, the 大学管理 has resolved to attend to the students who have received the admission letters and are conditionally registered. These students will be required to meet the criteria for the programmes for which they have applied and satisfy the registration requirements such as requisite fees. 这个问题必须在2022年3月15日星期二之前解决.
The university acknowledges the economic hardships that many of our stakeholders are experiencing, 特别是由于大流行. 这些困难也影响着世界各地的高等教育机构. 尽管存在问题和不确定性, we have advanced payments for NSFAS qualifying students to cover their registration and allowances. We urge students to update their banking details to enable us to pay their allowances. We know that there are students who have applied for NSFAS funding and others who have submitted their appeals. 这些学生仍在等待反馈, and regrettably there is absolutely nothing the university can do to fast-track the processes and update the students regarding the status of their applications and/or appeals. 这所大学无法进入NSFAS系统.
自费或cash-p马坑校园里的学生, can make financial arrangements by completing a student request form available online and submit the form together with all supporting documents to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Financial 登记 committee (FRC) governed by the terms of reference (as approved) reviews all the submissions, 有理由的批准或拒绝. The outcome of each individual case will be communicated in writing to the student.
关于津贴, the 菠菜信誉导航收录站 will only receive the first payment from NSFAS at the end of April 2022. 与此同时, the university carries the full cash-flow burden to pay the allowances upfront for February until April to ensure that the students can commence with their studies.
There are students whose studies at the 菠菜信誉导航收录站 and who have been terminated due to poor academic performance. 就一般规则A1而言.18日,这些学生 可否向教务长申请重新入读大学. 每一项上诉都必须根据其本身的是非曲事加以考虑, and the university cannot merely deviate from the approved rules to accommodate certain students.
There are requests by some student formations for the university to reopen the residence accreditation process to enable owners to acquire accreditation numbers. 大学的立场是，业主或我没有认证号码的房东有以下两种:
认证并不是简单地授予每个申请的服务提供商. The accreditation department needs to receive all the required documentation where after all such documents are verified and only after that, 是否会发出认可编号. 遵守NSFAS提交津贴的时限, all lease agreements with accredited service providers must be uploaded in good time to be able to submit the claims to NSFAS. The due date for lease agreements has passed on 11 3月 to enable the timeous payment of allowances.
对于不维护其设施的认可住宅, the accreditation office will be undertaking regular unannounced oversight visits. The facilities that are not maintained or no longer meet the accreditation criteria will be put on terms and subsequently de-accredited if they do not improve. It must be emphasised that NSFAS rules are clear that universities must only allow students to consider private accommodation if university residences are already full or in instances where the university does not have student residential facilities.
ESKOM的定期停电对白菜大全论坛999的运营产生了负面影响. The university has back-up generators that assist whenever there are power blackouts, 这些都很有帮助. 然而, one of the generators on the Vanderbijlpark Campus is undergoing repairs and is affecting our power-supply contingency plans. The procurement of repair parts is delayed due to supply-chain backlog as a result of Covid-19. We know this is affecting some of our students negatively and hope the repairs will be concluded very soon.
符合Covid-19国家指南, the 菠菜信誉导航收录站 has adopted a pro-vaccination position and encourages students and staff to be vaccinated. The revision of the Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA) that guides the vaccination requirements emanating from the Institutional Rules on Vaccinations will commence once the DHET Guidelines have been published. The processing of personal information related to Covid-19 by the 菠菜信誉导航收录站 had been pronounced by the Information Regulator as lawful.
The 大学管理 and all staff members are working hard to ensure a successful completion of the first term. 尽管做了这么多努力, the university cannot guarantee that all conditionally registered students will be registered due to factors beyond our control. We need the cooperation of all our stakeholders to ensure a successful 2022 academic year. 白菜大全论坛999期待周二的休息时间, 2022年3月22日至3月25日, 最后完成注册的日期是哪一天.
Our sincere appreciation to all staff and students who are constructively engaged in teaching and learning activities. 正如格雷戈里·威廉姆斯所说: “On the other side of a storm is the strength that comes from having navigated through it. 扬起帆开始吧.”
