The Office of Community University PartnershipS (CUPS) is a unit in the division of Advancement & Partnerships of the University. We are also known as the Wits Partnerships Office.
CUPS focuses on strategic partnerships which are aligned with the university's 2020 goals. The office deals primarily with partnerships that involve local, provincial and national partners. At times we assist the Wits International Office with certain partnerships involving partners outside the boarders of South Africa.
The office also maintains a database of all Community Engagement activities in which staff and students are involved. The database is regularly updated, so please contact us if your activity is not captured on the database. This database is the first port-of-call when anyone is looking to find who the university is working with locally, provincially, nationally and internationally.
