University in Focus: Maintaining Relevancy and Sustainability in a changing higher education environment
Things to Remember
The University of the Southern Caribbean Alumni Association is comprised of a loyal and supportive group of past students of the University. Alumni can be found worldwide; and an alumni chapter may be formed where ever a group of former students reside.
The Home Base is located in Trinidad and Tobago, with Headquarters on the University campus. The Home Association in Trinidad is responsible for linking with Chapters in the various islands: Barbados, St. Croix, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and other island territories. The Alumni Office on the campus is located on the ground floor of the La Realista building pictured above.
The USC Alumni Association goes as far back to the 1940’s when all Chapters, internationally and Caribbean, fell under its guidance. Reading the College Tidings of October 1949 one sees the caption “CTC Alumni Association conducts weekend services”. The January-February issue and the July 1950 issues referred to general annual meetings of the “CTC Alumni Association” that were called on the campus. The January-February 1950 issue stated that on December 4, 1949, “Officers of the association for 1950 were elected and the Class of 1949 was the last academic class to receive membership in the association” for that year.
With the formation of the umbrella Alumni Association, North America, the Chapters in the United States and Canada coordinate with each other, and are closely knitted with the aim of pooling their energies to assist their alma mater. England and the island Chapters continue under the guidance of the Alumni Association, Home Base.
Both Associations encourage the formation of Chapters to foster a spirit of loyalty to their alma mater, and to co-ordinate project giving. They also maintain a communication link with the University Administration and the Office of Alumni Relations.
So far, Chapters are functioning in Alabama, California, Orlando and Miami, Michigan, Atlanta, New England, New Jersey, New York, and Washington D.C., as well as in Canada, Barbados, St. Croix, St Lucia, St. Vincent and the U.K.
There is also a need for new Caribbean Chapters to be established in Antigua, Grenada and other islands, as well as for the reviving of the Chapters in St. Vincent and St. Lucia.
