Dr Jan Heunis, Maties alumnus and President of the Stellenbosch University (SU) Convocation, has been elected to the SU Council by members of Convocation.
Dr Heunis’ term starts on 8 October 2021 and comes to an end on 7 October 2025.
Members of the Convocation were requested to submit nominations to fill this vacancy and as more than one candidate was nominated, an election was held. Convocation members were able to vote electronically, and this election closed on 7 October 2021.
Mr Sikhulekile Duma was the only nominee for the position of a Convocation member on the Institutional Forum, and he is therefore considered to be duly elected. His term will be from 1 January 2022 to 31 December 2024.
