George Campus


Congratulations to Adjunct Professor Dirk Roux, one of  the Nelson Mandela University Sustainability Research Unit’s (SRU) stalwart Research Associates, who was again awarded a highly respectable B3 rating by the National Research Foundation for the period 2017-2020.


According to NRF, B-ratings are reserved for "Researchers who enjoy considerable international recognition by their peers for the high quality and impact of their recent research outputs”.

George Campus Principal, Prof. Quinton Johnson, warmly congratulated Prof. Roux on his “Superb international rating, which recognizes the world-class research that he is undertaking as a sustainable futures leader”.

Said Prof. Andrew Leitch, NMMU Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Research and Engagement: “Congratulations! As one of our Adjunct Professors linked to our Sustainability Research Unit on our George campus, your continued association with our University is greatly appreciated. We also appreciate your seniority on the campus, in your supervision of our postgrad students and your support for the vision of the SRU. Thanks also for being such a strong link between SANParks and NMMU. We will do what we can to support you as you further advance your research standing through the NMMU”.
