Three historic firsts for Prof. Barriteau
Chancellor of the University of the West Indies, Sir George Alleyne, last evening inducted Professor Violet Eudine Barriteau as the first female principal of the Cave Hill Campus.
She is also the first Cave Hill alumna as well as the first graduate from the Faculty of Social Sciences to be elevated to the top post.
Barriteau, the fifth principal of the Cave Hill Campus pledged to further advance the university to boost its contribution to the development of Barbados and the region.
“Under my leadership the UWI Cave Hill Campus will go further into the Barbadian community even as we deepen our relevance in serving the wider Caribbean,” she said after being caped by former Cave Hill principal and current UWI Vice-Chancellor, Sir Hilary Beckles, and capped by Sir George.
