NWU celebrates youth month

Message from the vice-chancellor, Prof Dan Kgwadi: Youth Day 2019

Forty-three years ago, the youth of South Africa made their voices heard and changed the course of our history. Youth Day is a day on which we commemorate and acknowledge the role that youth played in the past and how they remain important role-players in shaping the development and growth of our country.

The resolve that characterised the events of 16 June 1976, should be a source of inspiration to the youth of today. Our role as a university places us in a unique position to direct the energy and ideals of our young people to be the dreamers of today and the doers of tomorrow.

In shaping our students to become responsible citizens, critical thinkers, innovators and champions of social justice, we prepare our youth to embrace change and make an impact.

As a university community, we will continue to encourage and promote social inclusion and cohesion, as we strive towards being an internationally recognised university in Africa, distinguished for engaged scholarship, social responsiveness and an ethic of care.

Let us continue to build a university that responds to the needs and aspirations of our country.

It all starts here!

What is important to you as a young South African?

What does Youth Day mean to you?
