Press Release:-The UWI Open Campus Saint Lucia in collaboration with 1st National Bank St .Lucia Limited, will on Thursday 13th October , 2016 host The 2nd Annual Lady Marilyn Floissac Memorial Lecture at its Morne Fortune campus.
Entitled “Show Me Your Skin…and I’ll Tell You Who You Are”, the lecture will be delivered at 7:00 p.m. by Professor Surujpal Teelucksingh, former Head of the Department of Clinical Medical Sciences, Faculty of Medical Sciences, UWI, St. Augustine campus.
Lady Marilyn Consuela Theresa Floissac (nee Bristol) joined the ranks of a line of distinguished Resident Tutors of the former School of Continuing Studies of The University of the West Indies, Saint Lucia (1982) which she headed until her retirement in 1993.
During her distinguished tenure, Lady Floissac worked assiduously to ensure the provision of academic and administrative support for students following The UWI’s ‘Challenge Examination Programme’, via its then pioneering teleconferencing system.
It was with deep sadness that the Open Campus of The University of the West Indies (UWI) learnt of her the death on October 14, 2014. The inauguration of an annual memorial lecture was conceived therefore, as a fitting way to honour Lady Floissac’s memory and her sterling contribution to The UWI and the people of Saint Lucia.
The public is invited to attend.
