“The Vice-Chancellor and Rector Assignment was afforded to Academic Partners as a result of them being highly recommended. In our 105 year history, this is the first time we have called for outside help in appointing our senior most post.
Academic Partners initiated this assignment with convincing professionalism, enthusiasm and speed and made useful contributions in developing our need. The UFS Council also expressed it’s appreciation for the efficient and professional manner in which the assignment was conducted and concluded.”
