Eligible UM System faculty and staff are invited to apply. If you are interested in working with only the University of Western Cape (UWC) in Cape Town, then you want to apply under the UM/UWC Faculty Exchange Program; this Partnerships Program is for collaboration with other institutions or for a multi-institutional collaboration that may include UWC.
