In December 2010, following the review of the College Model by a panel of international experts, Council accepted an implementation plan for College Reorganisation based on the recommendations in the review report.

The objectives of the College Reorganisation are to achieve both structural and functional efficiency, streamline decision-making and better enable academics to focus on research, teaching and scholarly matters. This will assist to bring UKZN in line with best international practice and modern trends in high impact, efficient and competitive higher education institutions in order to realise its vision and mission.

Good progress has been made and we are on track to complete the preparations of this reorganisation by end of October 2011 and put into effect the new structure come 1 January 2012.

I appeal to members of the university community to take advantage of this opportunity to ensure the university emerges stronger and better than the one we started with.

Stage 5 - Understanding

The final stage, the sixth stage of the Change Cycle, is the end of the change process.  At this stage the millipede is focussed on integration – making the change a permanent part of his life.
