Prime Minister Freundel Stuart has challenged “leading thinkers” at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill campus to be the “clarifying voice” for Barbados and the region.
Giving the keynote address at a ceremony on Wednesday night to cap year-long celebrations of the campus’ 50th jubilee at the Errol Barrow Centre for Creative Imagination, Stuart said that “if Barbados and the Caribbean ever needed clarifying voices it is now”.
He said the “perception is that the society has stopped feeling the university and certainly is not hearing it often enough on these critical issues”. Stuart said Cave Hill was operating in a world which was “vastly different from the world in 1963 when the university was established”.
Stuart said that within the region, “increasing numbers of people, across classes, face mounting frustration, hopelessness and insecurity as more and more they seem to be losing control over the forces that determine the quality and the content of their lives”.
