Welcome back to the National University of Belize as we commence the second semester of the academic year 2017/2018. At the same time let me wish each and everyone, and your families, my best wishes for the New Year 2018. I sincerely hope you had an enjoyable and restful holiday season with your loved ones. The New Year offers a great opportunity for personal and academic growth.
Every year brings new challenges for all of us and our Institutions, some old and some new ones. Let me say that 2018 is a year of renewed hope for our University, an opportunity for us to continue to reach for a higher level in the service to our stakeholders, especially you, our students of the University of Belize.
Our Transformational Plan for the period 2017-2022 is what gives us hope for a much better Institution. During your break the Fultec Systems Computer Lab, which was upgraded last semester and includes 70 new computers was inaugurated at the Belmopan Central Campus. This is a prime example of the advancement we are working towards at UB.
This year our immediate focus will be on execution and reaching our higher goals. It gives me great pleasure that orientation for new students entering UB for January intake had over 100 participants from all over the country. Thanks for taking the time to be in attendance and for choosing UB to fulfill your educational needs. We at UB give you a special welcome and would like to assist you on your educational journey.
As UB students, you are the reason we have a University and you remain at the center of all that we do.
