En­gage­ment of Con­sul­tant – SALCC Trans­for­ma­tion

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Sir Arthur Lewis Com­mu­nity Col­lege con­tin­ues its jour­ney of trans­form­ing to a Univer­sity Col­lege. In this re­gard it is cur­rently work­ing on im­prov­ing its or­ga­ni­za­tional, tech­no­log­i­cal and phys­i­cal in­fra­struc­ture.

A very im­por­tant com­po­nent of the Univer­sity Col­lege’s suc­cess will be com­mu­nity en­gage­ment. De­vel­op­ing and nur­tur­ing re­la­tion­ships with busi­nesses and the pro­fes­sions pro­vides the in­put and guid­ance for de­sign­ing and en­sur­ing an un­der­stand­ing of the na­ture of ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing needs for a knowledge-based so­ci­ety.

To this end, the Col­lege has en­gaged the ser­vices of Dr. Jamil Salmi, a global ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion ex­pert on ex­cel­lence in higher ed­u­ca­tion, who will be in Saint Lu­cia from March 20-22, 2017.

Dr. Salmi ad­vises gov­ern­ments and univer­sity lead­ers through­out the world on sys­tem-wide ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion re­forms, in­clud­ing vi­sion for the fu­ture and na­tional de­vel­op­ment strate­gies, ex­cel­lence initiatives, gov­er­nance, fi­nan­cial sus­tain­abil­ity, qual­ity as­sur­ance, in­sti­tu­tional dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion, sys­tem ar­tic­u­la­tion, eq­uity pro­mo­tion and change man­age­ment strate­gies.

Fur­ther, Dr. Salmi pro­vides ad­vice on bench­mark­ing, strate­gic plan­ning and ca­pac­ity build­ing for es­tab­lish­ing world­class univer­si­ties.

Dr. Salmi also de­liv­ers lead­er­ship and strate­gic plan­ning train­ing for higher ed­u­ca­tion lead­ers and of­fi­cials.

The suc­cess of the Univer­sity Col­lege is im­per­a­tive for the long-term growth and de­vel­op­ment of Saint Lu­cia. Dis­cus­sions with in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal stake­hold­ers will be taken into con­sid­er­a­tion as a new strat­egy is cre­ated for this In­sti­tu­tion.

Sir Arthur Lewis Com­mu­nity Col­lege: Dis­cus­sions will be held next week with key con­sul­tants as the school con­tin­ues ef­forts to tran­si­tion into a Univer­sity Col­lege.
