Waar die kranse antwoord gee,
Sounds the call to come together, And united we shall stand,
Let us live and strive for freedom, In South Africa our land.

“The medieval university looked backwards; it professed to be a storehouse of old knowledge. The modern university looks forward, and is a factory of new knowledge.” Thomas Huxley
Hugh Amoore combines the best aspects of both types of university as described by Huxley.
Hugh Amoore was appointed Registrar of UCT in 1987. He became only the seventh person to hold this post at UCT. The Cape Times at the time headlined the announcement of his appointment as the “Youngest-ever Registrar at UCT”. His 42 years of service to UCT included 27 years as Registrar by the time he retired at the end of 2015. During his career he served the administration of five UCT Vice-Chancellors. But his impact has not only been felt at UCT. He has assisted - in both formal and an informal advisory capacity - many other universities, thereby serving higher education across South Africa. He continues to do so to this very day.
Even as a student in the early 1970s, Hugh Amoore contributed to UCT’s reputation of service, activism and excellence. He excelled academically, was a very good athlete, served as SRC Secretary, was active in NUSAS and as sub-warden of the Kopano student residence. At a time when student politics in the country was closely watched by the security police and during the time that NUSAS had to contend with the formation of the Black Consciousness South African Students’ Organisation, Hugh Amoore was among the small band of student leaders who were having to examine closely the role of the white liberal and the left in the political developments in South Africa.
His student activities prepared him for his later professional roles at UCT. His career was launched as a staff member in the Student Affairs Department at UCT in 1974. His letter of application, like much of his correspondence since then, was penned in his classic calligraphy style. He rose through the ranks of Academic Planning Officer (1978), Academic Secretary (1984) and Registrar in January 1987.
UCT Vice-Chancellors relied heavily on him, particularly as they took on the tasks of revising academic planning and administration, and pursuing and safeguarding the prized principle of academic freedom and institutional autonomy. He found and developed ways to get around apartheid restrictions in order to bring into UCT students who, according to the apartheid government, did not belong here.
He relished the challenges that difficult times brought to UCT and he was a key member of the senior leadership of the University that helped steer the institution through those difficult times.
Continued on the following page
A previous Vice-Chancellor - Dr Stuart Saunders – recalls Hugh Amoore’s leading role in UCT’s decision to take the apartheid government to court for attaching unlawful conditions to the awarding of university subsidies. Dr Saunders wrote as follows: “In this matter the wise counsel of Hugh Amoore, the University Registrar, gave strength to the arguments in favour of taking legal action, a step which I fully supported. We took action jointly with the University of the Western Cape … A victory was essential to maintain the independence of the University and to allow staff and students to protest against the iniquitous laws under which we were being forced to live.” The judges found unanimously in favour of the University in a judgement that was delivered early in 1988.
Besides his knowledge of the University and the changing needs of the student population, Hugh Amoore has seen UCT and student and academic life across the country change in various ways. He has been through all the experiments with Higher Education policy. Over the years while he was Registrar, UCT enrolled a growing number of Black students. This development meant that much had to change at the University. Among such transformation initiatives were the policies on racism as well as sexual harassment, and attention that had to be paid to institutional culture at UCT. Amoore was Registrar when the struggle for transformation at UCT was taken to another level with the outbreak of #RhodesMustFall, and later #FeesMustFall in 2015.
Hugh Amoore has a reputation among all university administrators in South Africa. Having served at UCT for as long as he did, he is much in demand to assist other universities. His knowledge of higher education policy formation has earned him the reputation of being an authority on higher education. He has also been utilized by the Department of Higher Education, as well as the Commission for Higher Education.
The award of the President of Convocation medal recognises the way Hugh Amoore has represented UCT and higher education, and the dignity he has conferred on the institution through his consistent attention to detail; for the service he has given over more than four decades and the imagination and innovation he has brought to that service; for the ways he has collaborated with colleagues at UCT; and with other institutions and government agencies in South African higher education; and for the critical thought he has put into every activity he has initiated, led and carried to completion at UCT.
The President of Convocation has deemed it fit that Mr Hugh Amoore is deserving of the award of the prestigious President of Convocation’s Award for 2016.

Note: As of January 2015, the levels of individual donors’ giving circles have changed as follows:
• Chancellor’s circle: formerly R250 000+, now R500 000+; • Vice-Chancellor’s Circle: formerly R100 000 – R250 000, now R250 000 – R500 000; • Dean’s circle: formerly R60 000 – R100 000, now R100 000 – R250 000; • Friends of UCT: formerly <R60,000, now <R100,000.
Please note that these changes only affect donations received after 1 January 2015. All donors who were members of particular circles prior to January 2015, will continue to be recognised in their original circles, until the rolling five-year giving period has elapsed.
We apologize for any omissions or errors. If you would like to query your donations totals, circle membership, or any other matter related to your gifts to UCT, please email [email protected]

Welcome, Wamkelekile, Welkom – today is not the end of your relationship with the university but the beginning of a new phase in your continuing relationship with UCT, one that
you share with the UCT community of over 100 000 alumni. Diverse as this community is, the shared experiences of a critical academic ethos and a spectacular campus make for a strong network that has a wide footprint,
not only in South Africa, but across the continent and the globe.
We set a great store by our links with our alumni, and indeed the links alumni have with each other. We promise that we will be in touch, and ask you in turn to let us know
not only your current contact details but also, from time to time, something of your lives and where you are in your careers.
Updates can be done on the web – http://www.uct.ac.za/dad/alumni/update/ - or by writing to the Alumni Office, UCT, PB X3 Rondebosch 7701
or by contacting us on (27) (21) 650 3746.
Your alma mater looks forward to welcoming you back, whether to a public lecture, a leadership forum, your class reunion,
or just an informal call!
