Working with Communities to Benefit Society

The University of KwaZulu-Natal’s numerous community engagement programmes aim to address the challenges that confront communities.

Community engagement forms part of the University’s ongoing activities. Apart from teaching and learning, UKZN has a responsibility to ensure that its existence benefits society by addressing challenges and societal needs. The University’s Strategic Plan 2017-2021 established four Research Flagships that will promote research that has socio-economic impact and is relevant to society. The flagships are African Health- Saving Lives; Social Cohesion- Addressing Inequality and Promoting Nation Building; Big Data and Informatics – Computing Solutions; and African Cities of the Future – Most Live-able Cities.
