Community Engagement

The vision of the University of Fort Hare undertakes to ensure that teaching and research excellence is at the service, not only of its students and scholars, but the wider community. The university commits itself in its mission statement, to the "advancement of knowledge that is socially and ethically relevant, and applying that knowledge to the scientific, technological and social-economic development of our nation and the wider world".

Community engagement at the University of Fort Hare, therefore, refers to all negotiated and dynamic partnerships between the university and the community it serves, which is practiced through varied initiatives focused on the interlace of teaching and research, and aimed at addressing the social, cultural and economic development objectives of society.
