UWI cut?

SOME FIRST-YEAR COURSES and part-time lecturers at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Cave Hill campus may be cut because of the low numbers of students accepting places for this academic year.
Senior UWI officials said yesterday that this was likely, given the dramatic drop in the numbers of students who had accepted places to pursue degree programmes across faculties from September.
A well placed UWI source said next week each faculty would meet to examine the enrolment trends and decide whether to shed courses and/or staff.
He said such a meeting was held every year and in previous years when enrolment was high, more temporary staff were hired to ensure courses were adequately covered.
