Press Release:-The UWI Open Campus Saint Lucia, in collaboration with the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College and Monroe College invites the public to attend a series of presentations at The Saint Lucia Country Conference 2016 to be held on October 27 and 28th , 2016 at the Bay Gardens Hotel, Rodney Bay Village.

The overall theme of the conference is “Collegial Information Sharing For Sustainable Development”.

The conference is expected to create an environment for sharing and learning, which is a necessary step towards establishing the links which facilitate the management of indigenous knowledge for our own use, thus providing an avenue by which academic research on Saint Lucia can make a substantial contribution to global discourse.  

Bearing in mind the similarity of the mandates of the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College and Monroe College to that of The UWI, it was felt that these two sister institutions would be critical partners in the hosting of the Saint Lucia Country Conference.

Conference presentations will take place on Thursday 27 and Friday 28 October, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:40 p.m. daily. The presentation schedule for each day is available on the “UWI Open Campus Saint Lucia”.facebook page.

Participants will however be responsible for their own lunch arrangements.  A registration desk will be set up at the Bay Gardens Hotel to facilitate cash payments only.
