The University of the West Indies is about to undergo institutional change.

Vice Chancellor, Sir Hilary Beckles, says he wants to restructure the UWI in order to better serve Caribbean people.

Sir Hillary was speaking yesterday at a press conference in Barbados, called by the UWI’s Zika task force.

Sir Hilary says he was inspired to make the changes, after realizing how difficult it was to send a simple email.

The Vice Chancellor says the public can expect to see the UWI engaged in more activism on behalf of Caribbean people, starting with the Zika task force and a proposed poverty eradication task force.
