Ross University may take over entire LESC


Share post:

THE ENTIRE Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre ( LESC) may eventually be taken over by the Ross University School of Medicine.

Minister of Tourism Kerrie Symmonds hinted this yesterday while addressing a Local Investors Conference on plans to lease Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA) in a public-private sector partnership arrangement.

Stressing it was “a policy decision that has not yet been made”, Symmonds told the packed room at the LESC: “We are contemplating the reality that it might be better to allow Ross to have all of this place and we shift or move from the capital gains of a transfer of this asset to Ross, to a brand new convention centre which will allow for even greater capacity.”

He also announced that Chamberlain University, the sister school of Ross, would also be coming to Barbados.
