The Alumni Office would like to support all interest groups on campus to reach their alumni.
1. Dispatch of electronic communication to alumni: Many interest groups would like to send communication to alumni and therefore it is important to manage the process to prevent alumni from being overwhelmed with e-mails. As soon as too many e-mails are sent, especially if they are not directed at specific target groups, the receiver builds up resistance and often asks to be removed from the mailing list. In order to ensure optimal use of e-mail dispatch, adherence to certain guidelines is important (Click here to view the guidelines). Contact Jacqui Pietersen at 012 420 3702 or email@example.com
2. Access to telephones (students): Telephones in the Alumni Office will, as far as possible, be made available for students to contact their alumni on behalf of their residence/interest group/faculty to update contact information. This should be arranged one week in advance with the Alumni Office.
3. Media exposure: The Alumni Office would like to report on all alumni functions on the web page and where possible, in the electronic newsletter. Interest groups are requested to forward information and photographs on alumni activities or achievements to the Alumni Office.
4. Alumni reunions and events: The Alumni Office will gladly give advice to any interest group organising reunions or events (such as residence reunions or prestige lectures). The Alumni Office would like to be presented at these events.
TuksAlumni reserves the right to change the guidelines above if necessary. Kindly contact the Alumni Office at x 3086 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Kindly visit the homepage of the TuksAlumni Office at www.up.ac.za/alumni for more information about their work, events and aims.
In February, five members of the CHILD research group at the University of Jönköping, Sweden (Dr Karina Huus, Ms Frida Lygnegård, Ms Madeleine Sjöman, Drs Stefan Nilsson and Margareta Adolfsson), visited the Centre for Augmentative and Alternative Communication (CAAC) at the University of Pretoria.
Michael Barrett, composer and conductor of the University of Pretoria’s 71-member Tuks Camerata student choir, has been paid the high compliment of having one of his works published by the biggest international distributor of choral music.
The Faculty of Humanities at the University of Pretoria notes with concern the recent passing of legislation in Uganda, the Anti-Homosexuality Act, which criminalises non-heterosexual sexualities and relationships, and anyone who “acts as an accomplice or in any way abets homosexuality”.
Onkruiddoder-selektiwiteit verwys na die vermoë van onkruiddoders om tussen plantsoorte te onderskei wat betref skadelike uitwerking – ‘n onkruiddoder wat selektief is, beheer of beskadig sekere soorte plante en ander weer nie.
Die ruuste onderskeid wat in selektiwiteit van onkruiddoders getref word, is tussen sogenaamde grasdoders (onkruiddoders wat grasse beheer) en breëblaardoders, dit wil sê onkruiddoders wat plante anders as grasse en uintjies beheer.
