for tomorrow



IN A GESTURE of goodwill, all Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) staff received a 10-year T-shirt to celebrate the institution’s first successful decade.

And, in an equally pleasing show of support, NMMU’s 2 500-plus permanent and contract staff members all donned their new shirts on Tuesday, 10 March for “T-shirt Tuesday”.

“If you’ve got the T-shirt, wear it” support was evident throughout NMMU’s six campuses, five of which are in the metro and one in George.

The University is hosting a number of events, project and initiatives in celebration of its first ten years many of which will take place on the 10th day of each month. 

A 10-year anniversary steering committee will finalise the various initiatives, with the theme of looking back, looking forward.

Likely 10-year initiatives include:

·         Special publications

·         A clothing charity drive, Hangout4ubuntu and

·         A big walk and

·         A large function for the NMMU community
