Bermudez takes up Chancellor duties

News day / A release from the UWI regional headquarters in Mona, Jamaica said the university welcomed Chancellor Bermudez, to mark the change in leadership as he assumed the post of the highest office-holder in the UWI system. Bermudez as Chancellor shall preside at meetings of the Council (the highest governing body of the regional university) and any Convocation and shall have such powers and perform such duties as may be conferred upon the holder of the office of Chancellor by The UWI Charter or any Statute, Ordinance or Regulation, according to the university’s statutes and ordinances.

Bermudez has been an entrepreneur for over 40 years. He led the growth of his family- owned firm, to a regional business throughout the Caribbean and Latin America.

He has enjoyed a distinguished career in business, serving as either chairman or board director for several corporate bodies in Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean.

The UWI said his vision for the UWI outlines a keen sense of the mission, effectiveness, relevance and interdependence of academia and the economy.

His professional experience as a Caribbean- wide entrepreneur with business acumen garnered from across the region suggests that, the UWI said, he will continue the outstanding tradition of chancellorship at the university.
