THE NUMBERS GRADUATING from the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI) are down by 12 per cent.

But, said retiring Chancellor of UWI, Sir George Alleyne, the number of men graduating has increased and the Cave Hill Campus is looking to upgrade its plant in an attempt to maintain its excellence in science and technology.

Sir George was delivering his penultimate address at yesterday morning’s graduation at the Cave Hill Campus. His final was during the evening ceremony.

As he congratulated the graduates, Sir George said 81 obtained first class honours, out of a total of about 1 500.

That total, he explained, was a reduction of about 12 per cent on the 2014/2015 numbers.
