Join us for an evening of wisdom with the venerable Prof Ihron Rensburg as we discover what it takes to build an impactful career transforming and modernising legacy institutions in South Africa. 

Prof Rensburg is an author, former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Johannesburg,  Administrator of the Vaal University of Technology, Chairperson of the South Africa National UNESCO Commission, and Chairperson of the Ministerial Committee on Higher Education. His passion for developing higher education institutions into centres of excellence has enabled Prof Rensburg to build an impactful career in academia.  

Prior to serving as the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Johannesburg between 2006 and 2017, Prof Rensburg served as CE Strategic Services at the South African Broadcasting Corporation, Deputy Director-General of South Africa’s Department of Education, and General Secretary of the National Education Crisis Committee, which formed part of the broad anti-apartheid movement. 

With a passion for the development of higher education, Prof Rensburg has always championed the cause for students and higher institutions in South Africa. In his latest book, Serving Higher Purposes, Prof Rensburg provides a captivating account of the transformation of the university landscape in post-Apartheid South Africa. From a personal and socio-economic lens, he recounts the challenges and successes that pivoted the creation of the University of Johannesburg from a disordered merger between two competing institutions into the building of a world-class African university.
