Who are we?
A SOBEDS Community Engagement Committee, comprising 5 committee members, namely: Prof Yanga Zembe-Zondi, Prof Claudia Loggia, Mrs Zilungile Mbhele, Dr Methembe Mdlalose, Mr Siphesihle Mbhele. Recently, we established a student arm called the SOBEDS Community Engagement Student Forum, led by postgraduate students Lwandile Manyoni & Siyasanga Mbaligontsi.
To establish Community Engagement as an institutionalized, theoretically embedded and intentional practice that is underpinned by collectively defined ethics and principles at SOBEDS. We want to make sure that the CE work we are doing goes beyond just making a positive impact, to contributing toward socio-economic transformation.
