Summit Commission Reports
In preparation for the Stakeholder Summit on Higher Education Transformation, stakeholders were invited to participate in an online forum, as well as to submit inputs via email to the Department of Higher Education and Training. The reports are in the form of presentations, which serves as summaries of key issues and recommendations arising from these inputs. The intention was to feed into the deliberations at the summit. The views in the summary are those expressed in individual submissions and do not necessarily reflect a consensus or majority view of the submissions as a whole. Source: www.cepd.org.za
