“The research university, the graduate university, the entrepreneurial university,” was the vision which Principal and Pro Vice Chancellor, Sir Hilary shared with an audience headed by Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and gathered for a closing ceremony that capped the campus’ year-long 50th anniversary celebrations at the Errol Barrow Centre for Creative Imagination, on Wednesday night.
