It is the Community Engagement Division’s mission to oversee the institutionalisation of community engagement, at RhodesUniversity through the processes of making the university more responsive to its social context and making the university more accessible to the community. The Community Engagement Division strives in all community engagement initiatives to contribute to individual transformation and sustainable human and community development in Grahamstown and the Eastern Cape as a whole.‌‌
