Dear USC Faculty, Staff, Students,
The administration of the University of the Southern Caribbean (USC) is cognizant of the difficulties traversing the country and is monitoring the situation.
Owing to the uncertainty of the weather conditions for tomorrow and considering the number of students, faculty and staff that are affected by the recent national disaster which caused severe flooding, we would like to inform everyone that there will be no classes for tomorrow, Monday 22nd. This closure will give us an opportunity to further assess the situation and to help many of our community members who are adversely affected. We are asking all members of faculty and staff who are unaffected, to volunteer to their neighbours and communities. The USC has an organized plan to help affected persons and are asking those who are interested to convene on campus at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow.
Although the USC campus has sustained no physical damage our main priority is to lend assistance to the members of our community who are affected. We have allocated temporary shelter for persons who are in need of such. Please send all reports of affected persons through our Vice-President for Spiritual Development and at the numbers listed below.
However, faculty, staff and students within the University campus and surrounding areas who are not affected are asked to make a very special effort to attend the George Simmons Lecture Series tomorrow, Monday 22, at 3:00 p.m. at the Social Sciences Auditorium.
Please stay tuned to the regular updates from the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM) and the University of the Southern Caribbean’s media channels.
Unless otherwise notified, we will resume duties on Tuesday, October 23rd.
