FUTURE LEADERS TO ASSEMBLE ON STT

The University of the Virgin Islands convenes its 6th Annual Summer Institute for Future Global Leaders in the Caribbean on the Thomas campus on Monday, May 22, 2000.
Forty-five young leaders from regional universities and colleges, as well as several mainland institutions, will undertake a two-week crash course, commencing on Tuesday May 23, designed to prepare them to guide the Caribbean into the 21st century as part of the new, global community.
"It is with great pleasure that I welcome participants to the 6th Annual Summer Institute for Future Global Leaders in the Caribbean," said Dr. Solomon Kabuka, chairman of UVI's Business Division and director of the Summer Institute. "It is my hope that during the intensive two-week session these academic achievers and leaders from their respective educational institutions will engage in vigorous discourse to shape their roles as future leaders in this region." This year's theme is, "Educating Global Leaders for the New Economy." According to Kabuka, most of the learning will focus on how to prepare leaders to be effective in an environment of e-commerce, wireless communication and the Internet.
Institute participants represent both UVI campuses, Morehouse University and
Clark Atlanta University in Georgia, Howard University in Washington, D.C., Tuskegee University in Alabama, Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, H. Lavity Stoutt Community College in the British Virgin Islands, Tennessee State University, Universite des Antilles et de la Guyane in Martinique, Mount Allison University in Canada, InterAmerican University, Universite Quisqueya and the University of Puerto Rico system in Puerto Rico and all three campuses of the University of the West Indies.
UVI President Dr. Orville Kean will welcome the program's participants and open the institute on Tuesday, May 23, at 8:30 a.m. in the Chase Auditorium. "As the University of the Virgin Islands hosts this Summer Institute for the year 2000, I encourage these participants to forge ahead with a single goal – to acquire the leadership competencies required to successfully advance the interests of the region in the global economy of the 21st century," Dr. Kean said.
His Excellency Dr. Patrick Lewis, Antigua and Barbuda Ambassador to the United Nations (U.N.), will present the opening keynote lecture on "Perspectives on Global Leadership in the Caribbean," at 9 a.m. on Tuesday May 23 in the Chase Auditorium. Ambassador Lewis, a former assistant professor of history at the University of Cincinnati and a former history professor, director of ethnic studies and a former member of the board of trustees of Hampton Institute, has been ambassador to the U.N. since 1995.

Summer Institute alumnae, Tanginika S. Cuasurd (1995) and Diana Richardson (1999) will provide case studies on developing and implementing a leadership prospectus.
The leadership for tomorrow segment of the program is headed by UVI Vice President for Student Life and Development and Assistant Professor Dr. Ronald Harrigan.
The culture and communication unit, led by Dr. Gilbert Sprauve, professor of modern languages at UVI, examines ways Caribbean leaders address the challenges of global communication.
