University’s history

Walter Sisulu University (WSU) was established on 1 July, 2005 in terms of the Higher Education Act No. 101 of 1997, as amended.

The new university was named in honour of an icon of the South African liberation struggle, the late Walter Max Ulyate Sisulu who was a close comrade of Nelson Mandela.

WSU’s turnaround

In October 2011, WSU was placed under administration at the request of the Council, Management and WSU stakeholders.

This period of Administration ended on 30 April 2014. During the past two and a half years, many new systems and processes have been implemented to stabilise the university and re-position the institution on a new trajectory.

WSU is undergoing a significant turnaround strategy to improve infrastructure, to review the academic enterprise, ICT infrastructure, financial sustainability and human resources.

A new institutional statute was gazetted on 17 January 2014 and in May 2014, a new council took over from the former administrator Professor Lourens van Staden.
