Systemic Core Values
A primary core value of any University is academic freedom, which is enshrined in
the Bill of Rights of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa. This core
value must be buttressed by institutional autonomy, but within an environment
where public accountability is seen as a virtue. Principles and behaviours defined
in the Charter must accord with these and the institutional core values below.
