Academic Development


To help UNIZULU become a learning organization not an organization about learning.



 The AD Unit will provide leadership, support, and access to appropriate resources, to assist the University, its staff and its students to develop their capacity to undertake teaching-and-learning, research, and community engagement as befits a comprehensive institution.

In pursuit of this mission, AD offers the following:


  • The organisation and delivery of high quality, relevant, efficiently managed, events (e.g. institutional tasks, workshops, seminars and training sessions) for staff and for students.
  • The knowledge and interpersonal skills to engage staff and students, both in small and large numbers, in training, advocacy or discussion mode.
  • The competence and dedication to provide high quality backup and support skills of a secretarial and organisational nature for committees, task teams and working groups.




At your service!
