The NWU officially came into being on 1 January 2004 as part of the South African government’s plan to transform higher education. In our case, this saw a historically white university and a historically black university merging to create a new university where South Africans from all walks of life have come together.
The spirit of the university is reflected in the way we unlock the future for people and enable them to make their dreams come true. This spirit runs across all our activities and operations, from our academic offerings and research to our student body, community engagement and sports achievements.
For many years, the NWU has been at the heart of technology advances that support the use and development of South Africa's 11 official languages. Now, as host of a national research infrastructure, the South African Centre for Digital Language Resources, the NWU will be able to take its commitment to multilingualism a major step forward.
