HE HAS NOT officially assumed the mantle of vice chancellor, but Sir Hilary Beckles has in fact started the job.

Sir Hilary saluted Professor Harris for a decade of outstanding leadership to The UWI and successfully keeping the regional institution intact during a period of major financial and economic challenge to the university and the region.
The outgoing principal of the Cave Hill campus will officially assume duties on Friday, as the de facto chief executive of the regional university with campuses at Mona, Jamaica; St Augustine, Trinidad, Cave Hill, Barbados; and the Open Campus. (ES)
