Regional Headquarters, Jamaica. Friday, 21 April 2017 – The University of the West Indies (The UWI) has noted, with surprise, the announcement made by Trinidad & Tobago’s Minister of Education, Mr. Anthony Garcia at a post-Cabinet media briefing earlier today, on the subject of the appointment of a new UWI Chancellor. 

The University Administration wishes to take this opportunity to indicate that Chancellors are appointed in accordance with the University’s Statute 4 which clearly states, “The Chancellor shall be appointed by the University Council.”

The University confirms that over the past few months, it has been working through a specially-appointed Search Committee, to identify an appropriate successor to Sir George Alleyne, who is carded to demit office in the latter half of 2017. 

The matter of the appointment of the University’s new Chancellor is an item on the agenda for the upcoming Annual Business Meeting of University Council, set to take place on April 27, 2017, in Barbados. It is at this meeting that a final decision will be made on the new UWI Chancellor.
