The Executive Director of the UKZN Foundation, Professor Jane Meyerowitz, hosted a dinner at the office of the South African Consul-General in New York for United States-based alumni and friends.

The function, co-hosted by Consul-General George Monyemangene and the Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the College of Law and Management Studies, Professor John Mubangizi, brought together members of the USA-based trust Friends of UKZN Inc, consular staff and alumni to discuss ways in which the Foundation could expand its presence amongst alumni, donors and friends in New York.

Addressing the group, Monyemangene spoke about the number of highly rated universities on the East Coast of America and his desire to assist South African universities to forge partnerships with them.

Meyerowitz outlined the role of the Foundation and shared some ideas for engaging with alumni and friends abroad, while Mubangizi updated guests on recent events at UKZN.

A most convivial evening followed where the guests enjoyed a South African dinner, fine wines and engaged in discussion on a wide range of issues.
