UB Receives Donation of Books from Dr. Carla Barnett
The University of Belize is the recipient of a generous book donation from Dr. Carla Barnett, recently appointed Secretary General for the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). Dr. Barnett is widely known in Belize and the Caribbean, having held leadership positions in various regional institutions throughout the Caribbean. These books are from her personal collection and represent the scope and breadth of Dr. Barnett’s scholarship and interests. They are a showcase of the profound dedication and quest for knowledge that no doubt has propelled her to some of the highest leadership positions in the region. These books will serve as an invaluable source of reference for students and researchers and will be a great addition to the University of Belize’s Library.
Interim President, Dr. Vincent Palacio and Chair of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Dr. Bernard Watler, received the donation on behalf of the University.
