A sweet venture unfolded at The University of the West Indies' (The UWI) Cave Hill Campus on October 20 as The UWI’s world-renowned Cocoa Research Centre (CRC) introduced its signature chocolates to the Barbados market. This 'soft launch', which coincided with the graduation ceremonies, marked the CRC's first foray into the Barbadian market. The launch, led by Pro Vice-Chancellor and St. Augustine Campus Principal, Professor Rose-Marie Belle Antoine, which was also attended by Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Hilary Beckles, and the Cave Hill Campus Principal Professor Clive Landis, sets a new benchmark for CRC’s expansion into the region towards growing the appeal for quality, regional chocolate products.

In a significant meeting at the Cave Hill Bookshop, Professor Antoine led discussions with the President of the Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI), Mr. James “Jimmy” Clarke, and The UWI Bookshop Manager, Beverly Smith-Hinkson which revolved around the potential of CRC’s chocolates in Barbados. The much-coveted ‘Trinitario’ cocoa, is a hybrid between two cocoa types, originated in Trinidad, where the largest gene bank is found. During the two-day expo in Trinidad from October 27-28, local artisans and chocolatiers unveiled an array of beverages, gourmet creations crafted from locally sourced cocoa, and an exquisite display of cocoa-inspired art and craft.

This year's expo theme, ‘Experience the Triple Helix,’ highlighted the synergy between the public sector, private enterprises, and academia in fostering industry advancement. The entry of the CRC chocolates into the Barbadian market formed part of the thrust to showcase the CRC’s commitment to the broader region. Interestingly, the chocolate-tasting session in Barbados drew in enthusiastic students was a highlight and drew in enthusiastic students and BCCI members alike. Additionally, the CRC also introduced its exclusive 50g chocolate bars, priced at BD$17.86 (TT$60.00), which are now available for purchase at The UWI bookstore at the Cave Hill Campus, along with other select locations, offering accessible options to purchase and taste the region's chocolate craftsmanship by a wider audience.

The soft launch of the Cocoa Research Centre’s (CRC) chocolates, exceeded expectations in scale and participation highlighting a new benchmark for innovation, sustainability, and industry collaboration. The response was overwhelmingly positive, prompting The UWI Cave Hill Bookshop to begin selling CRC's chocolates and to request additional supplies to meet the already growing demand. Furthermore, the BCCI's expression of interest in a collaboration signals a promising horizon for CRC’s chocolates in Barbados.

Vice-Chancellor’s Forum: Masculinity, Fatherhood and Children’s Rights | Monday, November 20 | ALL STAFF, STUDENTS, FACULTY AND ALUMNI

The Office of the Vice-Chancellor in collaboration with the Institute for Gender and Development Studies (IGDS), will host a Vice-Chancellor’s Forum on Monday, November 20, 2023 from 12:00 PM (JA/EST)/1:00 pm (EC/AST).

Each November 20 on World Children’s Day, adults around the world come together to listen to children in support of UNICEF’s call for a more inclusive and equitable world. Just 24 hours before on November 19, organisations and governments around the world recognise International Men’s Day as an opportunity for men to reflect, converse and act on their important contributions to society. The well-being of children and the well-being of men are closely linked. The UWI Regional Coordinating Office of the Institute for Gender and Development Studies (IGDS) as part of its anniversary events for “30 Years of Advocacy for Gender Justice” unites these two important observances in this panel discussion titled, “Masculinity, Fatherhood and Children’s Rights”. The panel will unpack shifts in masculinities and their implications for children's rights to education, living free from violence—family violence, gang violence—adequate nutrition, healthcare, and other rights enshrined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Gender justice advocates will interrogate the value of fathers not only as disciplinarians and breadwinners but as nurturers, caregivers, participants in domestic labour, and as such, central to the development of children, and by extension, societies.

"When your back is against the wall, speak to those you trust. Don't hold your stress to yourself; speak about it and recognize all your blessings, no matter how small.

Take time for yourself; get some peace of mind. It's okay to ​feel like the world is on your shoulders and not feel strong enough to take it on. It's okay to feel weak and not be in control all the time. It's ok​ay to not live up to everyone else's expectations. Be true to who you are.

Reset, reload, and fight another day.

On the flip side​, support your brothers and those ​who are in your circle. Vent ​when you must to those you trust and don't be ashamed to reach out for help. Sometimes, it is just what we need because we can't always do it alone.

When one considers the term ‘NO MALE Su***de’ it should paint a picture or create an image where statistically the numbers of male su***des are minimal or non-existent.

How do we get there?

We get there by ensuring that men are fully supported and not emasculated when life becomes a tad bit ‘rough’. Men have feelings and should be allowed to feel them with no repercussions on the basis of being considered ‘weak.’ Additionally, as a man, you should find and surround yourself with people who strengthen you whether it be physically, emotionally, or spiritually. Keep aspiring because one day it will get better. The stars will align one day. Stay hopeful. Keep your head up, king. - Brandon J Sealy

Dr Clarence Henry, President of The UWI Alumni Association Saint Lucia shares his thoughts on the theme for International Men's Day 2023, 'Zero Male Su***de' and its relevance to our local society.

17/11/2023

International Men's Day is recognised annually on 19th November under a well-timed theme.

This year, the theme of Zero Male Su***de seeks to draw awareness of the growing number of males who commit su***de and to help create preventative measures to stop or significantly decrease this crisis. *ONE SU***DE is ONE TOO MANY.*

Battling suicidal thoughts and plans is not what we wish for men. Reach out to the men in your life and encourage them to speak up and out if they are unable to cope with their circumstances and need an ear or guidance.

Stay tuned as males from The UWI Global Campus Saint Lucia Site, Student Guild Executive Members, and The UWIAA Saint Lucia Chapter give their take on the theme and provide words of hope, from one man to another.

I, Yannil Sam, have served as a Crime Scene Investigator with the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force for the past fourteen years. In the midst of a demanding career, I decided to further my education, driven by a desire to enhance my financial management skills—an essential aspect of both my personal and professional life. This journey was one of self-discovery, resilience, and determination, and I am grateful for the opportunity to reflect on this milestone in my life.

Choosing The UWI Global Campus was a strategic decision for me. The university's stellar reputation, combined with its flexibility and convenience, made it the perfect fit for my busy schedule. Pursuing Financial Management was a natural choice as it aligned closely with my primary interests and complemented my career aspirations. Little did I know that this academic journey would become a transformative experience, shaping not only my professional skills but also my personal growth.

The Global Campus experience has been a blend of sweetness and bitterness. The sweetness stems from the marvelous moments and unforgettable experiences, such as participating in the UWI games and forming bonds with incredible friends. These moments added color to the challenging academic landscape, creating memories that will stay with me forever.
On the flip side, the bitterness arose from the intense pressure and stress that often accompanied the pursuit of academic excellence. Balancing a demanding job, studies, and family responsibilities was no easy feat. In order to support myself and my family, I took on two additional side jobs, sacrificing sleep to meet my financial obligations and academic goals. The sleepless nights were numerous, and the journey was undoubtedly challenging.
To my fellow students, both current and prospective, I offer this piece of advice: Embrace the challenges, no matter how formidable they may seem. Have faith in God and, more importantly, in yourself. The road to success is often paved with obstacles, but with discipline, determination, and resilience, you can overcome anything. Believing in yourself is the first step to unlocking your full potential.

As I stand on the precipice of a new chapter in my life, I am filled with gratitude for the unwavering support of my family, friends, and The UWI Global Campus community. This achievement is not mine alone; it is a testament to the power of collaboration and the belief that education is a shared journey.

I extend my deepest appreciation to The UWI Global Campus for considering me worthy of being featured on their page. It is an honor that I hold dear, and I hope that my journey inspires others to pursue their dreams relentlessly, knowing that hard work and dedication do yield success.

My heart is full as I reflect on this significant achievement. I am excited about the future and the opportunities that lie ahead. Thank you to everyone who has been part of my journey—your support has made all the difference.

With gratitude,

Yannil Sam

My name is Vicky James, and I am from the bustling community of Richfond, Dennery. I am a Customer Relations Officer at Bank of St. Lucia. I have a close-knit family that has always encouraged me to pursue higher education and has been a constant source of encouragement and support throughout my educational endeavors.

I decided to study at The UWI Global Campus because of its convenience and flexibility. As a working professional, it was essential for me to find a way to continue my education while still fulfilling my job responsibilities. The Global Campus allowed me to do just that, making it possible to balance work and studies effectively. I opted for Management Studies because I saw it as a pathway to unlocking a world of opportunities in my career. Management is a fundamental skill that can be applied across various industries, and I believe that this course would equip me with the knowledge and skills needed to excel in my professional life.

My experience at the Global Campus has been nothing short of a rollercoaster ride with both challenges and rewards. Adapting to the Virtual Campus environment presented its unique set of challenges. One of the most notable challenges was completing multiple assignments with shared tight deadlines, which created an immense amount of pressure. At times, it felt like I was juggling multiple responsibilities in a high-stakes circus act. Each course had its demands, and when several assignments coincided, it led to sleepless nights, long hours in front of the computer, and even anxiety. It often seemed overwhelming, and the pressure to excel was palpable. It required me to become more responsible, disciplined, organized, and focused.

Balancing studies with home, work and social responsibilities was no small feat. To succeed, I had to become a master of time management and prioritize my goals over everything else. Creating a well-structured schedule and setting clear priorities were essential. My family's understanding and support played a crucial role in my ability to manage these responsibilities effectively. It was not always easy, but it was always worth it.

To my fellow continuing students, I'd like to share a quote by Lily Tomlin: "The road to success is always under construction." Stay consistent, put your best foot forward, and remember that challenges are part of the journey. Each obstacle is an opportunity for growth. To potential students considering the UWI Open Campus, I would advise you to stay true to yourself. The academic journey is not always a smooth sail but always remember your goals and aspirations. With determination and the right support system, you can achieve your dreams.
Congratulations to the CLASS OF 2023! WE DID THAT!

Hi, I am Tara Gonzague, Cherinz daughter, hailing from the community of Ti Rocher, Micoud. My mom "Cherinz", my biggest inspiration to strive to do better and to overcome incredible odds.

I grew a keen interest in the hospitality industry when I started my employment journey at a well established resort right after completing my studies at the Micoud Secondary School. Despite my childhood dreams of being an accountant, the exposure and knowledge I obtained at that establishment gave me a greater sense of fulfillment and a different perspective on customer service. Hence, my passion for tourism and hospitality influenced my drive to pursue a BSc in Tourism & Hospitality Management, which is in line with my desired career path.

My journey at The UWI Open Campus started in January of 2020. Studying with the Open Campus afforded me the flexibility to study at my own pace via its virtual platform. That was a plus! During my time at UWI, I also faced a few challenges; navigating the portal finding credible sources from the library and balancing my time between work, school, social life, and managing my small business. However, throughout the semesters, I gradually overcame those obstacles by developing self-discipline and patience. The pep talks I gave myself on a daily, along with the support and encouragement of my loving family & close friends kept me sane. Time management also played a significant role in ensuring that assignments were completed and submitted on time.

My advice for continuing and potential students;
1. Remember your "why" on days that you're feeling low. Let it be your drive!
2. Having a great support system is important! Find your tribe and be okay asking for help. No man is an island.
3. Create a schedule/timetable per course to help keep you in tune.
4. Be gentle with yourself. Hard work pays off!

Congratulations class of 2023!! We did it!

Today I stand at the threshold of a remarkable accomplishment – a journey that began with dreams, hard work, and unyielding dedication to my studies. I am Talifa Etienne, residing in the serene community of Belair, La Croix Maingot. I have pursued my education diligently and with a clear sense of progression from the La Croix Maingot Combined School to the Corinth Secondary School, then to the esteemed Sir Arthur Lewis Community College, and finally to the prestigious University of the West Indies. I am a dedicated professional at the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College, specifically within the eLearning unit, where I provide administrative support which is a crucial aspect of ensuring the smooth functioning of the unit’s initiatives and services.

Today I embark on a transformative journey as a graduate of the bachelor’s degree programme in International Management that will shape the course of my life. It was a journey marked by dedication, perseverance, and a burning passion for understanding the intricacies of global business. The early days of my academic pursuit were filled with curiosity and a desire to grasp the fundamentals of international business. The world of economies, diverse cultures, and strategic management fascinated me, urging me to delve deeper into the dynamics of the global market. With an insatiable thirst for knowledge, I delved into articles, engaged in stimulating discussions, and collaborated with brilliant minds, absorbing the wealth of wisdom our faculty offered.

As the semesters progressed, I faced many challenges that tested my mettle. These challenges became growth opportunities, forcing me to sharpen my critical thinking and problem-solving skills. The collaborative projects and group assignments not only expanded my knowledge but also nurtured my ability to work effectively within diverse teams – a skill vital in today’s globalized world. One of the defining aspects of my journey was the opportunity to immerse myself in cross-cultural experiences as I conversed with students of varied backgrounds which broadened my understanding of different cultures, their business practices, and the importance of cultural sensitivity in international business. During my academic tenure, I became deeply passionate about ethical business practices and sustainability. Understanding the profound impact businesses have on the environment and society, ignited a desire to advocate for responsible business conduct. I engaged in research to promote sustainability and ethical leadership within the realm of international business.
The journey was not without its share of sacrifices and hard work. Late nights of studying, balancing academics with a full-time job, and overcoming moments of doubt were all part of the process. But it was the determination and commitment that fueled my drive to strive for excellence, ultimately leading to the achievement of a first-class honour. And now, as I stand at the pinnacle of this journey, adorned with the distinction of a first-class honour, I am filled with gratitude. I am grateful for the unwavering support of my family, specifically my husband – Marlon Etienne, daughter – Marla Etienne, and my sister - Delia Boullie, who is also a first-class honour graduate. They have been the pillars of my strength, constant sources of encouragement, and the most ardent believers in my dreams. Not forgetting, the wisdom of my mentors, the camaraderie of my peers, and the opportunities bestowed upon me.

The road ahead is exciting and filled with endless possibilities. Armed with this remarkable honour, I am confident in my abilities to make meaningful contributions to the global community. I am eager to apply the knowledge, skills, and values I have acquired to create a positive impact on the world of international business. The journey has not only equipped me for the professional world but has also shaped me as an individual – instilling in me a sense of responsibility, empathy, and a commitment to making a difference.

As I embark on the next chapter of my life, I carry with me the lessons learned, the memories cherished, and the dreams yet to be realized. My journey as a first-class honour graduate has been nothing short of incredible, and I am eager to see where this path takes me. My advice for continuing and potential students is never to give up in the face of obstacles, doubts, or setbacks, but to keep pushing forward, believe in yourself, and persist in the pursuit of your goals and dreams.

Onward and upward, toward a future of endless possibilities!
