On Oct 12, 2019 the Pelican Award Ceremony and Chancellor’s Forum was held at 6 p.m. at the GorGovernor General’s Residence, under the theme “UWI Embracing and Engaging Alumni”. Th e UWI is extremely grateful to Sir Rodney Williams for hosting the event . The citations were superbly presented by Dr. Phyllis Fleming Banks and three awards were presented as follows:
  • His Excellency Sir Rodney Williams of Antigua
  • Professor  Gerald Grell of Dominica
  • Rev. William Watty of Dominica

They were awarded for their outstanding service in their various fields of endeavor. A musical rendition by Dr. George Roberts followed the awards and this led into the Chancellor’s Forum. Chancellor Bermudez gave an overview of his thoughts on alumni relations and the future of the UWI. Vice-Chancellor Beckles highlighted that the Government of Bermuda was engaging the Open Campus to have Bermudians complete their education at The UWI, and mentioned that the Hon. Minister of Education was present. He also noted that the University had a presence in China, Africa, Asia, USA and Cuba and was looking to forming other alliances to showcase The UWI brand. The audience was given an opportunity to ask questions and make recommendations. There was a mix and mingle session afterwards where delicious refreshments were served. The feedback from alumni about the Chancellor’s Forum was very positive and having the opportunity to see and interact with him, as well as with the Vice Chancellor, was regarded as extremely progressive and constructive.
