Community Interaction Projects
All community projects or programmes under the auspices of the University must be registered on the institutional CI database.
The Division for Community Interaction takes the responsibility to facilitate the registration of projects. The dean of each Faculty takes the responsibility for the registration of projects managed by staff in departments. Faculty managers will receive support to enable them to give guidance to departments. The Division for Community Interaction makes staff available who can assist with the registration process. Please contact the Division in this respect. Please access the database template to view the kinds of information required.
It is recommended that a coordinator is assigned for each department to oversee the registration of the department's projects. In collaboration with the Stellenbosch Foundation, no financial proposals for work in a community will be accepted unless the project is registered on the database.
In order to be considered a fully registered and approved CI project of the university a project is subjected to an initial approval (quality assurance) process which involves the following steps:
1. The database administrator in the Division for Community Interaction approves the project in terms of completeness of information.
Project owners are required to update the details of their project each year on the database to ensure that the information is always relevant and accurate.
