Sol Plaatje University (SPU) installed its second Vice-Chancellor and Principal, Professor Andrew M Crouch, at a ceremony held at the SPU Community Hall on Friday, 26 November 2021.

Professor Crouch took up office on 1 April 2020, but due to the national lockdown that went into effect at that time, this installation ceremony had to be postponed.

Professor Crouch was officially installed by the Chancellor of SPU Judge Steven Majiedt in the presence of the Premier of the Northern Cape Dr Zamani Saul, SPU council members, Executive Mayor of the Sol Plaatje Local Municipality Mr Kagisho Sonyoni, former SPU Chairperson of Council Judge Yvonne Mokgoro, former SPU Vice-Chancellor and Principal Professor Yunus Ballim, the Crouch family, the SPU Student Representative Council and members of the SPU community. A live stream of the ceremony was attended by over 300 viewers on YouTube and Kimberley TV in compliance with COVID-19 restrictions
