October 2017

On September 16, 2017, Mr. Robert Bermudez was ceremoniously installed as the sixth Chancellor of The University of the West Indies. His installation was held at the Daaga Auditorium on the St. Augustine Campus and was attended by the President of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, Mr. Anthony Carmona and the Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley, as well as ministers of government and members of the diplomatic corps from the region. The senior management of the University was also resplendent in their academic regalia as they took part in one of the most formal of the University’s traditional rites. Please see Page 4 for the Chancellor’s installation address.
