Join us online to celebrate the launch of Professor Ihron Rensburg’s new book.

‘Serving higher purposes’ presents a captivating account of one of the most noteworthy events of democratic South Africa – the transformation of the university landscape. Prof Ihron Rensburg recounts both the challenges and successes of the creation of the University of Johannesburg and traces its trajectory from a muddled merger between competing institutions to a truly African university. Weaving together personal observations, family history, socio-economic theory and even the history of a city, this is a text which offers us not only a glimpse of a particular university, but of how we can be, how we can do, within the space of the university.
