Caribbean Tertiary Institutions body holds meeting here
November 24, 2003
THE Association of Caribbean Tertiary Institutions held its Annual Business Meeting in the National Library, Georgetown on Friday.
President of the Association Professor James Rose described the past year as a difficult one for Guyana but he lauded the members and friends of the Association for their sterling contributions throughout the year.
Dr Rose noted that the body has been able to accomplish a considerable number of goals, and he expressed the view that they should be grateful for their accomplishments.
He highlighted the adoption of a new Logo and Constitution for the Association. He noted, too, that working committees were established to deal with programme development and accreditation and articulation for the body.
During the year, Dr Rose said, the Association was also favoured with a visit from three British educators, and it now looks forward to the signing of a memorandum of understanding with a consortium of colleges.
During the past year, members of the Association of Caribbean Tertiary Institutions also attended several international conferences on education. The body also held a successful fundraiser.
As President of the body, Professor Rose called for the maximising of efforts in order to offer the best possible service to stakeholders, and also the consolidation of the Associationís links with other tertiary bodies.
