The University of the West Indies (UWI), Cave Hill campus today launched its year of celebration for it's 50th anniversary. The launch of the diamond jubilee event, which was punctuated with much applause, gave those attending an insight into the journey of the tertiary education facility over the last five decades. Yesterday saw the unveiling of a logo, and recognition given to those who would have contributed to the establishment's growth and sustenance. It was attended by a number of educators including the Minister of Education Ronald Jones, principal and pro vice chancellor, Professor Sir Hilary Beckles, deputy principal, professor Eudine Barriteau. In her closing remarks, Barriteau said the campus continued to enjoy tripartite relations with government and the corporate sector. "We have continued to attract a high calibre," she said. "We continue to grow and diversify to ensure that we meet the highest standards in the delivery of tertiary education," added Barriteau. (MM)
