Rhodes University Jan Smuts Hall
Vision and Mission
The students and staff of The Jan Smuts Hall, inspired by the spirit of ubuntu-botho, acknowledge the challenges facing a diverse community of people with varying backgrounds, cultures and histories.
We strive to create a residential environment based on the principles and values of dignity, equality and freedom.
We recognise self-discipline, humility, loyalty, courtesy, self-respect and respect for others as essential for harmonious communal living.
The spirit of ubuntu-botho shall at all times inform the management of Jan Smuts Hall and its constituent Houses.
