The UWI salutes Barbados on Republic status, appointment of first President 

The Uni­ver­si­ty com­mu­ni­ty salutes the peo­ple of Bar­ba­dos and Prime Min­is­ter, The Ho­n­ourable Mia Amor Mot­t­ley, on the bold move to leave the coun­try’s colo­nial past be­hind, and elect a Bar­ba­di­an Head of State, on their 55th an­niver­sary of In­de­pen­dence. The re­gion­al acad­e­my stands ready to serve Bar­ba­dos in this next phase of na­tion-build­ing and looks for­ward to its con­tin­ued up­ward tra­jec­to­ry of de­vel­op­ment.

Ex­tend­ing his con­grat­u­la­tions, Vice-Chan­cel­lor of The UWI, Pro­fes­sor Sir Hi­lary Beck­les stat­ed:

“On No­vem­ber 30, 2021, the peo­ple of Bar­ba­dos, led by two bril­liant and coura­geous women, com­plet­ed the jour­ney to full in­de­pen­dence.  A proud na­tion has shed the shack­les of be­ing Britain’s first black slave so­ci­ety, to be­come the first coun­try in the Caribbean in this twen­ty-first cen­tu­ry to de­clare that the time has come for full na­tion­hood.”

Sir Hi­lary, an Eco­nom­ic His­to­ri­an and son of Bar­ba­dos, ex­tolled the oc­ca­sion, adding:

“Fifty-five years af­ter Nep­tune’s bro­ken tri­dent her­ald­ed the move to in­de­pen­dence, the tri­dent has again mar­shalled the forces of the mag­nif­i­cent At­lantic Ocean and the North­east trade winds that brought the an­ces­tors to these shores. The tri­dent has wield­ed its pow­er in rais­ing the de­scen­dants of those an­ces­tors at home and in the di­as­po­ra, as Bar­ba­dos de­clares its sta­tus as: The Re­pub­lic of Bar­ba­dos.”

The shift to Re­pub­lic sta­tus sees Her Ex­cel­len­cy the Most Ho­n­ourable Dame San­dra Ma­son tran­si­tion from Gov­er­nor-Gen­er­al to Pres­i­dent. Her ap­point­ment brings added sig­nif­i­cance for The UWI as it fol­lows a spe­cial con­vo­ca­tion in Sep­tem­ber to con­fer up­on this proud alum­na, an hon­orary Doc­tor of Laws (LLD) de­gree for her out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion to pub­lic ser­vice. Her Ex­cel­len­cy was among the first co­hort of stu­dents en­rolled at The UWI Cave Hill Cam­pus, Fac­ul­ty of Law.
