Sir Hilary: Not at war

Principal of the Cave Hill Campus, Sir Hilary Beckles has stressed that he enjoys cordial and not adversarial relations with the Stuart administration in the shared governance of the University of the West Indies.

He was reacting to a Barbados TODAY back page article which stated that, “Sir Hilary Hits Out at Sinckler Over Cave Hill Expansion”. The principal was at the time addressing the handing over of land to the campus by philanthropist Eddie Edghill, owner of Dukes Plantation in St. Thomas.

Sir Hilary went to great lengths not to reference the comments of any specific individual but wanted to set the record straight as a historian and deal with the growing deluge of public commentary that was seeking to cast the university’s contribution to economic development in a negative light.
