A major project involving the development of University of the West Indies Open Campus Sites in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and St. Lucia was officially launched here this morning.
The project is intended to enhance the physical facilities of the Open Campus, while developing its academic programming and building institutional capacity to strengthen the delivery of distance education.
Delivering the feature address at this morning’s launch, Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves welcomed the move by the UWI Open Campus to expand its facilities.
The Prime Minister said the expanded facilities will play a significant role in helping the Government to achieve the target of having one University Graduate per household by 2025.
This morning’s launch was held as part of the objectives of the UWI Open Campus, under its current strategic plan for 2012-2017.
