On behalf of the teaching and administrative staff, I heartily welcome both new and returning students to the Faculty of Humanities and Education at the Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies in Jamaica.
Our overall mission, which is in sync with the University’s Strategic Plan, is to advance learning through teaching, research and publication, including service to society, by offering outstanding undergraduate and graduate programmes that are globally competitive.
Although our resources are severely limited, we are committed in this Faculty to the total academic and social development of our undergraduate and postgraduate students. As an expression of that commitment we strive constantly for student-centeredness in our policy formulations and practices, as well as in our quest at improving the teaching and learning environment through the provision of cutting-edge information technology designed to enhance teaching delivery.
Your choice of the Faculty of Humanities and Education for tertiary education was not misplaced; and we wish for you all a very productive and rewarding academic year. Finally, in your own interest and those to come behind, we also implore you to protect and care for those resources that the University has put in place to promote your own intellectual and social wellbeing during the period of your stewardship in the Faculty of Humanities and Education, Mona Campus.
Professor Waibinte E. Wariboko
