From the 26 public universities that make up South Africa’s higher education system, UJ is one of the major contact institutions in the country.
The University of Johannesburg’s mission is to be “an international university of choice, rooted in Africa, and dynamically influencing the future.” “Inspiring its community to alter and serve humanity through innovation and the collaborative pursuit of knowledge,” the mission states. Four values underpin these: imagination, discourse, regeneration, and ethical grounding.The six strategic objectives serve as a focus for achieving the University’s Vision, Mission, and Values, as stated above.
