This is us

The stakeholder version of the NWU's Integrated report will soon be available. Please click here for the 2019 report that was submitted to the Department of Higher Education and Training.

We create value with an ethic of care



The theme of the NWU’s 2019 integrated report, “Value creation with an ethic of care”, is about how we use an ethic of care as a compass while creating value for ourselves as an institution and for all our stakeholders.


In itself, value creation does not set us apart. It is how we create this value, namely with an ethic of care, that stands out. In the report, we explain how we do this.


Approved by Council on 28 July 2020 and submitted to the Department of Higher Education and Training at the end of July, this report’s front-page image embodies our theme.


The picture of the NeuHand, a hand rehabilitation system developed by the Faculty of Engineering, shows how we use our expertise to create value for people, because we care.
