REDUCING THE RELIANCE of the University of the West Indies Open Campus on funding from regional governments is a major part of the strategy of new head of the institution, Professor Eudine Barriteau.

Barriteau said during a media briefing at the campus this morning she hoped that within ten years the educational institution would have reached financial sustainability.

The plan is to reach this goal through penetrating new markets, increasing student enrolment and offering a menu of new programmes, she said.

Regional governments are committed to funding about 40 per cent of the Open Campus’ budget but they have been facing challenges in funding the UWI.  (TY)
