In the spotlight

Women's Month: #CelebratingNWUWomen

"The importance of national Women's Day can never be overstated, as this day serves to remind us of the many sacrifices made by women in various fields to better the lives of their families, the community, and the country. Closer to home, I in particular honour all NWU women who tirelessly work to make the NWU the great institution that it is." Prof Dan Kgwadi, Vice-Chancellor

The North-West University is celebrating Women's Month this August by profiling some of the women (#CelebratingNWUWomen) who serve as the foundation and the pillars upon which the NWU's continuous success is built. The NWU is proud of their unwavering commitment to ensure a better future for every child in this country. Thank you to all the mothers and daughters, sisters and colleagues, friends and leaders.
