The former apartheid government founded the historically black institution, located near Cape Town, to serve "colored" South Africans only, but the University of the Western Cape embraced a new mission in the 1970s to serve all races and became the intellectual home of progressive forces. This five-year, $250,000 grant enables UWC to continue building on fundraising and advancement efforts launched as part of our original Kresge Special Initiative in South Africa.
