Achieving Justice through Reconciliation on a South African University Campus

CLE credit: 
One hour approved
Weight:

Speakers/Special Guests: 

Dr. Jonathan Jansen
Vice Chancellor and Rector (President) of the University of the Free State in Bloemfontein, South Africa

Sponsored by the Roslyn Z. Wolf Endowed Chair in Urban Educational Leadership

Dr. Jonathan Jansen will discuss how the South African Constitution’s guarantees of human dignity, the achievement of equality and the advancement of human rights and freedoms are being furthered on his campus. Attorneys in South Africa have been heavily invested in litigating the rights of students under these three broad constitutional claims. Against a backdrop of the approaching twentieth anniversary of the end of apartheid, Dr. Jansen will discuss the reasonable measures that South Africa’s universities are undertaking to fulfill the South African Constitution’s right of its citizens to education beyond K-12. South African courts have rendered a number of decisions balancing the constitutional right of citizens to use the language and culture of their choice with a university’s right to make choices regarding the languages of instruction.

Dr. Jansen has served as Vice-Chancellor and Rector of the University of the Free State in Bloemfontein, South Africa since 2009. He is an Honorary Professor of Education at the University of the Witwatersrand and has received an honorary doctorate in Education from the Cleveland State University. He is a former Fulbright Scholar to Stanford University (2007-2008) and was previously Dean of Education at the University of Pretoria (2001-2007). 

Dr. Jansen’s most recent book is Knowledge in the Blood (2009, Stanford University Press), while he has also co-authored Diversity High: Class, Color, Character and Culture in a South African High School (2008, University Press of America). In these and related works he examines how education leaders balance the dual imperatives of reparation and reconciliation in their leadership practice.
