St. Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves says that while he supports the UWI, he is not satisfied it’s doing enough to nurture initiative.
He made the comments as he delivered the feature address at the launch of the UWI, Cave Hill Campus Faculty of Social Sciences 40th anniversary celebrations.
“The issue of leadership for development is evidently of great importance. Unfortunately, in none of our regional universities, including UWI, is there any structured programme to develop leadership,” he said.
“It is mistakenly assumed very often that the acquisition of a university degree somehow offers leadership qualities upon the graduate,” Gonsalves added, noting that he had personally seen bright, young people come out of university but when placed in the workplace, they had no initiative.
