UWI-ROYTEC, a division of the University of West Indies, St. Augustine campus is coming to VieuxFort, St. Lucia. Come September, St. Lucians and the people of the neighboring islands will be able to pursue their tertiary education here in VieuxFort, St. Lucia. People of St. Lucia will be able to attain UWI-ROYTEC degrees without having to leave the island. Many new programmes will be jointly offered by the International American University (IAU), and the University of the West Indies ROYTEC, at International American University Campus, located in VieuxFort. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by these two institutions will facilitate the development and delivery of these programmes. The MOU was signed at the campus of the University of the West Indies (St. Augustine) on July 15, 2014. It was signed in the presence of officials of the three institutions who lauded the initiative. The programs, which will be offered, are in: Information Systems Management, Pharmacy, Nursing, Education, Hospitality Management, and Healthcare. Other certificate programs like Pharmacy Technician, Emergency Medical Technician, Phlebotomy, and Hospitality will also be offered as part of this MOU. A premed program leading to a B.Sc. degree in Health care management, designed for high school graduates, guarantees admission to the four-year MD program offered by IAU College of Medicine. ROYTEC is a private tertiary-level institution offering undergraduate degree programmes in business and teacher education; associate degree programmes in business and information technology; and professional diplomas and certificates in financial planning and business related specializations. When ROYTEC was founded in 1987 by the Royal Bank of Trinidad and Tobago (now known as RBC RBTT Bank Trinidad Limited), the institution’s primary purpose was the preparation of graduates to meet the human resource requirements of the banking and financial services sectors. PD appears essentially as a sporadic condition, without any other family members being affected. PD etiology remains mysterious, whereas its pathogenesis begins to be understood as a multifactorial cascade of deleterious factors. Although PD develop at any age, it is most common in older adults, with a peak age at onset around 60 years. The prevalence and incidence increases with age, with a lifetime risk of about 2%. PD is currently regarded as the most common degenerative disorder of the aging brain after the Alzheimer’s dementia. Most epidemiological studies estimate that over five million individuals in the world are carrying the diagnosis of PD and that roughly 100,000 new cases arise each year (Fahn & Przedborski, 2010). – Jes Paul residues persist on lettuce and tomatoes nearly twice as long as do wettable powders, with half-lives between 3 and 5 days, and that both the parent and major metabolite are stable to boiling in tomato homogenate. Still, despite outstanding questions of ecological and health effects, the use of rotenone is widely accepted under organic certification programs (Pesticides and You, Volume 7, No. 3, August, 19807.). IAU Campus Offering UWI-ROYTEC Courses In 2006, as part of the reorganization of the internal structure of RBTT Bank Limited, the external operations of ROYTEC was transferred to UWI, St. Augustine and the institution‟s name was changed to the UWI School of Business and Applied Studies Limited (trading as ROYTEC). This relationship between the University of the West Indies (UWI) and ROYTEC is a synergistic one in which the strengths of UWI serve to benefit the academic operations of ROYTEC and strengthen its leadership position in key fields where UWI has distinctive competencies. Over the past eight (8) years, this name change has also reflected the changing nature of ROYTEC, as evidenced by increased enrollment, admissions, quality standards, and graduation rates. – Sibi Gopalakrishnan, Public Relations Officer, IAU
