Walking the walk

“LOVE Walk: Talk to meh.” This was the way the Division of Student Services and Development (DSSD), headed by Dr. Deirdre Charles, wanted to emphasize to staff and students that The UWI St. Augustine is more than a university campus – it is a community.

So on April 13, many members of this community locked arms figuratively and with their handmade posters like compassionate parasols under the blazing midday sun, spread the word that no one has to suffer alone.

The Campus Principal, Professor Brian Copeland; Deputy Principal, Professor Rhoda Reddock; Director of Student Services and Development, Dr. Deirdre Charles; Director of Marketing and Communications, Dr. Dawn-Marie De Four-Gill; and Guild of Students President, Jonathan Nahous joined the walkers to share the love.
