UWI seeking to raise US$70m
THE UNIVERSITY of the West Indies (UWI) is seeking to raise US$70 million to refurbish their four campuses across the region.
This was revealed by Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Hilary Beckles, who was speaking at the launch of the Faculty of Sport at the Mona Campus in Jamaica yesterday.
“We are approaching our 70th anniversary next year, and we have launched a capital campaign, and we have focused that capital campaign on the Faculty of Sport. It will focus on implementing the specific structural needs of this faculty of sport,” he said.
Highlighting some of the improvements made to the campuses over the years, he noted that the Mona Campus was the least developed. (RA)
