Jamaica to host second Caribbean conference on higher education
Published on March 1, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

KINGSTON, Jamaica -- The UNESCO Institute for Higher Education in Latin America and the Caribbean (UNESCO/IESALC) and The University of the West Indies (UWI) will convene the Second Conference on Higher Education in the Caribbean (II CCHE), May 8 and 9, 2014 at the regional headquarters of the UWI in Kingston, Jamaica.

Under the theme, Best Practices in Higher Education: The Way Forward for the Caribbean”, II CCHE will focus on quality assurance and recognition of studies, titles and diplomas, research management and impact, and the financing of higher education. The conference will bring together presenters, facilitators and expert discussants from across the wider Caribbean and internationally.

It is expected that recommendations leading to strategy development to strengthen the capacity of Higher Education Institutions in these areas will come out of the gathering of these minds. II CCHE will also facilitate more extensive partnerships among participants and with other education stakeholders to achieve common regional goals.

Within the framework of the first Caribbean Conference on Higher Education (Paramaribo, Suriname, 2010), the conference will consider and contrast emerging needs and new commitments. A new Declaration and comprehensive regional plan of action will then be enunciated.
