Abstract

This chapter will consider information obtained from the WITS case study (Scott 2009) with respect to these four levels of integration. The focus is the extent to which WITS is dealing with the inclusion and exclusion of students from a cultural perspective from the dominant institutional one. An examination of questionnaire responses has been supplemented with information derived from interviews with academics and administrators, as well as with quantitative data from the DoE's Higher Education Management Information System and from the institution's Three Year Rolling Plan: 2004 to 2006 (WITS 2003).
