The Central University of Technology (CUT), Free State, bid farewell to one its long serving mainstays, Prof. Mabo­kang Monnapula-Mapesela.

She has taken up the position of deputy vice-chancellor: academic and student affairs at Rhodes University having served at CUT for ten years.

Monnapula-Mapesela took up her new role on 1 July, as the first black female to occupy the influential position.

She was the senior director for the Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching (CILT) at the CUT.

During her ten year tenure at the CUT, Monnapula-Mapesela served as the dean of academic development and support and later senior director for the CILT.

She previously worked as an asso­ciate professor at the University of the Free State (UFS) where she held several other academic positions.

Her international educational expe­rience includes working as a visiting professor in the Executive Directorate in Education Administration Programme at Seton Hall University in New Jersey.

Monnapula-Mapesela’s qualifications include a Ph.D. in Higher Education Studies and a master’s degree in Education from the UFS, a post-graduate diploma in Higher Education from Rhodes University and two undergra­duate degrees in Education and Science.

Asked about her time spent as an academic at CUT, Monnapula-Mapesela said: “Indeed, it has been a great privilege for me to have been part of this unique institution and the transformation agenda that has gone on at CUT and other universities of technology in the country.”
