What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.

Nelson Mandela 1918-2013

Today we honour the legacy of Nelson Mandela, a man whose courage, influence and passion for human rights truly changed the world. 

If you are on campus today, take a moment to visit our newly unveiled Mandela bust on the library lawn that was commissioned by UNSW to pay tribute to this man’s inspiring legacy and leadership.
