Join Peter Maher, Director of Alumni Relations, for a tour of campus and highlights of the University’s centenary celebrations.

Peter Maher hails from Irene, Pretoria and obtained his undergraduate degree in Journalism and Media Studies at Rhodes University and postgraduate degree at Wits University. He was appointed Director of Alumni Relations at Wits University in 2007 after a career spent in corporate communications and public relations including managing public relations and communications at the University of the North (now University of Limpopo) and Vista University’s Soweto Campus. He also served as Head of Publications at the Department of Education as well as Media Liaison Officer and acting spokesman for the Minister of Education prior to joining Wits.
He has received numerous awards for excellence in journalism and the Wits Alumni Office has won prestigious national and international awards under his leadership.
Representing Wits University to alumni around the world is a dream job for him. In 2022 he played an instrumental role in the University’s centenary celebrations and homecoming weekend and if alumni aren’t able to visit campus, he is happy to bring the campus to you through presentations and audio-visuals.
