Smock also thanked Trustee Sinclair L. Wilkinson for serving on the Board of Trustees. “I came, I saw and tried to make my contribution to the University,” said Trustee Wilkinson. “I am leaving with a better understanding of how boards function. This is not an ordinary board. This is a job. This is a second job.  I really applaud all of you for the kind of commitment you have made.”  

At the meeting, the Board voted to establish two new Master of Arts degree programs in the School of Education at the University. The Master of Arts degree Program in Educational Leadership and Master of Arts in School Counseling and Guidance are designed to prepare school professionals for the 21st Century with its changing roles of school professionals and the many challenges facing the territory, the wider Caribbean and the nation.
