The Council of the University of KwaZulu-Natal appointed of Dr Albert van Jaarsveld, the current Chief Executive Officer of the National Research Foundation as the new Vice-Chancellor and Principal of the University with effect from 1st February 2015.

He takes over from Professor Malegapuru Makgoba whose term of office ends on 31st December 2014. Professor Makgoba has led UKZN with distinction since his appointment as the first Vice-Chancellor of the merged institution in 2004. Professor Makgoba is available for a transitional period of three months on expiry of his current contract.

Dr van Jaarsveld brings with him a wealth of experience and new ideas on how to keep the University on an upward trajectory, building on its record of excellence through transformation. Van Jaarsveld’s experience in the driving seat of the National Research Foundation not only provided him with the functional knowledge of research systems at a macro level but also with the necessary experience to function at the highest level.
