for tomorrow

Innovation Office

It is with great sadness and sorrow that we announce the passing of Mary-Ann Chetty, a dear friend and a valued colleague. Mary-Ann was the Senior Innovation Manager within the Innovation Office for the last five years and she played an integral part within the office as well as within the University.  She will be sorely missed by all those who had the pleasure of knowing her and working with her.

In remembrance and to celebrate the life of Mary-Ann, a memorial service to commemorate her life will be held once NMMU operations resume.
