Antigua and Barbuda’s Push To have a UWI Campus T0 Dominate Friday’sMeeting Of Caricom Education Ministers

The Minister of Education has given the Cabinet the assurance that the UWI Ministers of Education Meeting planned for Friday, May 31, 2019, will be held primarily to ratify the Technical Committee’s approval of the commencement of the Fourth Landed Campus of the UWI at Five Islands, Antigua, in September 2019. The Minister was assured that the gaps identified by the Technical Committee are either cured or are about to be cured. For example, a sum of EC$154,000 have been set aside to bump up the speed of the I.T. connections at all four campuses: ABIIT, ABHTI, ASC, Five Islands. The UWI will name a Registrar and other officials, and identify Lecturers and Professors for all disciplines that are to be taught. Arrangements will be made to celebrate the significant step forward, after the decision to ratify has been made on Friday.
