Ipelegeng Child And Family Well-Being Centre
The Centre and Psychology Department of the NWU Mafikeng campus have been leading for years in South Africa as the major producer of black clinical psychologists. In the words of the campus Rector’s proclamation of 2010 as the year of the 30th anniversary of the university’s establishment, we also as a department celebrate same number of years of existence. As a contribution to anniversary’s celebrations we aim to present ourselves as the best multi-disciplinary training unit that:
• Is viable and profitably administered
• Has ability to train and produce quality psychologists
• Implements expertise towards community upliftment, and
• Substantively contributes to the aggregate university’s high-quality research output.
As we pursue the training mission of the centre, we also aim to attract high quality professionals, establish effective functionality, develop partnerships both at home and abroad, and have access to funds necessary for adequate response to our mandate.
