In his address to hundreds of faculty, staff and students during the President’s Convocation ceremony on September 11, 2017, Dr Hilary Bowman, University President, called upon all stakeholders to assist in perfecting the image of the University of the Southern Caribbean (USC).
“USC, being the most prestigious faith-based tertiary institution in the Caribbean is still the preferred university for many,” he said. “It is, therefore, significant for all stakeholders to project that positive image of USC to the Caribbean Community and beyond.”
He reminded students that Deans, Vice Presidents and Chairs are all there to offer a listening ear and bring solutions to the problems that they may encounter and should seek to present their problems to them rather than first taking the problem to social media. He also committed to personally offer a listening ear if solutions are not met.
To faculty and staff, he offered a reminder of their responsibility to help to improve the public image of USC. “To improve this image we must be aware of how our constituents think of USC. If we know how they think about us then we could make a deliberate effort to correct any negatives if any” said Bowman.
