CUT hosts “Constitutional Right to Equality” lecture
CUT hosted Judge Navi Pillay, former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, as  guest speaker at the Prestige Lecture held on 6 August 2015 at the Japie van Lill Auditorium.  The Prestige Lecture is one of the most important events in CUTs calendar. It is a yearly event of prestigious standard to which internationally acclaimed speakers in their respective fields of expertise are invited to engage with the university, partners, and the community at large. 

Judge Navi Pillay is among such speakers whom CUT found her commitment to social justice, human peace, and stability in the world relevant to social issues shaping thinking and practices within society. Her lecture focused on the Constitutional Right to Equality as a theme emanating from transformational challenges facing higher education and the country as whole.  The theme also offered interesting focus for CUT to respond to the national call from HESA and Ministry of Higher Education for the universities to come up with social cohesion programmes within the sector.
