UWI Cave Hill to be transformed
THE CAVE HILL campus of the University of the West Indies is set for a radical transformation that will see it less dependent on Government, building solid partnerships with the private sector and turning to science and technology as the way forward.
“The research university, the graduate university, the entrepreneurial university,” was the vision which Principal and Pro Vice Chancellor, Sir Hilary shared with an audience headed by Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and gathered for a closing ceremony that capped the campus’ year-long 50th anniversary celebrations at the Errol Barrow Centre for Creative Imagination, on Wednesday night.
“I can assure you, Prime Minister, that five years from now what you will see will be a very, very different Cave Hill campus; driven by its research, fundamentally a graduate school and driven by an entrepreneurial impulse of self-sufficiency,” a confident Sir Hilary declared. (AGB)
