University Deans Programme 2023
Opening Workshop

The University Deans Programme (UDP) has been designed as a tailored and context specific series of leadership and professional development initiatives, which assists in addressing their leadership and management needs.  The objectives and design principles for the Deans Programme are set out below.

  • The overall objectives of this UDP workshop are to:
  • Provide an enabling and supportive space to engage with some of the global and local trends which currently shape higher education and will be operating over the next decade.
  • Consider the implications of a changing, ever more complex world for Deanship in the South African higher education context.
  • Engage with the day-to-day experiences of Deans and how to create the conditions for managing change and collective problem solving.
  • Establish a network of Deans who can co-create a learning community which will have a lasting influence on the local HE sector.

The registration form is designed to capture important information regarding HELM participants for monitoring and evaluation purposes, as well as the reporting requirements from nominating universities. The section on biographical information is a funding requirement by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) in order to report on all University Capacity Development Grant (UCDG) beneficiaries/transformation indicators. Please assist us by completing all aspects of the registration form in order that HELM can comply with DHET’s reporting and participating universities requirements for this programme funded through the DHET UCDG.
