Thabo Mbeki African Leadership Institute

Unisa as the institutional home of TMALI

Unisa promotes African thought, philosophy, interests and epistemology.  It seeks to achieve this through its enquiry, scholarship and partnerships, as well as by utilising its rich human potential and infrastructure. Through these endeavours, Unisa seeks to address the legacy of neglected and marginalised issues relevant to South Africa and the rest of Africa. Unisa aims to position itself as an institutional leader in open and distance learning. It also seeks to establish itself as a leading university among the mega universities of the world.

Unisa’s distance education infrastructure, evident in its central, regional and technological facilities for registrations, services and delivery to students, as well as its production and despatch systems, makes it unique in South Africa: it can comfortably cater for 250 000 students. Unisa’s footprint on the African continent makes it an ideal partner with the Thabo Mbeki Foundation in contributing to the development of African leaders for Africa’s renewal.
