Rector and Vice-Chancellor for Stellenbosch University, Professor Wim De Villiers, says an independent Commission of Inquiry will be set up at the institution to deal with race and gender inequalities among others.
Today, Stellenbosch University students held a protest march on campus following an alleged incident of racism this weekend.
calling for the expulsion of the alleged racism perpetrator, Theuns Du Toit.
He allegedly urinated on books and study material of fellow student, Babalo Ndwayana.
Du Toit has since been suspended by the university.
De Villiers says the incident is shameful: "As part of this commitment, the rectorate will set up an external, independent commission of inquiry into the incident of racism and harassment at the university.
It's external, independent and will be headed by a respected judge."
