Following its usual end-of-year closure period from December 24 to January 2, The University of the West Indies (UWI) St. Augustine Campus resumed operations today.
In an Internal Communique shared to staff and students, Pro Vice-Chancellor and Campus Principal Professor Brian Copeland confirmed that campus operations for Semester 2 2021/22 will look quite similar to the last semester as the institution will continue to operate in a largely virtual mode.
Among the confirmations were that classes will continue to be delivered online for students, the default arrangement throughout the semester and for staff, existing arrangements from last semester will continue to January 31 2022, in the first instance.
Regarding examinations, Professor Copeland confirmed that selected in-person examinations, in effect over the last semester, will also continue.
In thanking staff and students for their continued patience in these uncertain times, Professor Copeland encouraged the campus community to get vaccinated.
