7. Professor Chrissie Boughey

"If you walk across the stage at graduation and all you have is knowledge, then we have failed you as a university."
Professor Chrissie Boughey retired as Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Academic and Student Affairs in June 2019. Central to her work at Rhodes was a focus on the integration of community engagement into all aspects of university life, driven by her deep conviction that Rhodes is uniquely placed to create graduates who have acquired much more than just information and skills. In this edition of Engagement in Action, she tells Jayne Morgan about the realisation of her vision of community engagement as a key pillar of what the university has to offer.
