Share post:

OUTGOING PRINCIPAL of the University of the West Indies (UWI) Cave Hill campus Sir Hilary Beckles says it would have been “irresponsible” and “unprofessional” of him not to have given Government the grim facts about what the fee policy change would mean.

He was responding to a question yesterday during what was billed as his final media briefing before he takes over as vice chancellor of the UWI.
