Professor Adam Habib: The way forward for South African universities: what will be the new normal?

Mon Sep 28, 16:00 - Mon Sep 28, 17:00


At YES Trust we are dedicated to inspiring young people. Our hope is that the wholesome values and ethics that we instill stay with our students for the rest of their lives. Through financial aid and mentorship, we create a family, where support, comfort and hope is given to young adults.

With funding from like-minded and compassionate South Africans, we have been able to provide funding for the tertiary education of a multitude of students since 1997. With the onset of the Covid-19 crisis, we have sought new ways of raising funds.

We are therefore delighted to offer you this wonderful live online talk via Zoom in support of our students and their future.

Adam Habib is a South African professor of political geography. He is the incoming director of the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London as of 1 January 2021. He is the Vice-Chancellor and Principal of the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. 

Habib has over 30 years of academic, research and administration expertise, spanning five universities and multiple local and international institutions, boards, and task teams. His professional involvement in institutions has always been defined by three distinct engagements: the contest of ideas, their translation into actionable initiatives, and the building of institutions.
