Rhodes appoints new registrar

Story from: The Announcer

Rhodes

For the first time in its 113 years of existence, Rhodes University has appointed a black female to the position of Registrar. Professor Adele Moodly is expected to start in her new position in October 2017.

Having held a number of senior leadership positions in over 20 years spent in the higher education sector, Prof Moodly brings with her a wealth of academic, leadership and managerial experience.

An Old Rhodian herself, Prof Moodly has a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Psychology and a Higher Diploma in Education from Rhodes University. She also has a Master’s degree in Education from the University of South Africa (UNISA) where she also completed her Doctor of Education qualification in 2001. In 2005, she completed a Master of Business Administration (MBA) at the Netherlands Business School (BSN).

In her most recent position, as Deputy Dean at the University of Fort Hare, Prof Moodly’s responsibilities included strategic planning and management, operational management, enrollment planning and human resources management.

“Prof Moodly’s appointment comes at the time when Rhodes is preparing to host the Transformation Summit to review progress in transforming the institution and to reflect on what still needs to be done. Our transformation agenda, in part, seeks to address the historical imbalance in the representation of women and black people on our executive structure,” Vice Chancellor, Dr Sizwe Mabizela said.

Prof Moodly succeeds Rhodes’ long serving Registrar, Dr Stephen Fourie, who retires after over 20 years in the position.
