The College of The Bahamas

Abo.

Th Colg of Th Bahamas -


Establishment
A publicly supported tertiary level educational institution,
The College of The Bahamas was established by an Act of
Parliament in 1974 to be a source of academic and intellectual
leadership in the newly sovereign state of the Commonwealth of The
Bahamas. The institution opened its doors to students for the first
time in September 1975.

As the national institution standing at the apex of the Bahamian
educational system, The College is mandated to educate and train
Bahamians for the purposes of self-fulfilment, productive work
and nation building. In the latter regard, COB is intended to be the
primary vehicle through which the higher education, research and
public service needs are met. The College of The Bahamas draws
its students from all levels of society and throughout the Bahamian
archipelago.

In terms of its value system and access to its programmes, The
College of The Bahamas believes firmly in diversity and its value to
high quality tertiary education. The faculty of The College is drawn
from the Americas, Britain, Europe, Africa, the Caribbean and The
Bahamas. The College welcomes international students and is
committed to facilitating the research of dedicated scholars from all
disciplines.

Governance
The general responsibility for the educational policy and
administration of The College is vested in a College Council. The
Council consists of The College's President, two public officers, a
student, a faculty member, President of the Alumni Association and
five persons representing other relevant sectors of the economy.

The Academic Board, subject to the direction of the Council, is
responsible for the academic administration of COB. The Board
is made up of the Vice President, Academic Affairs, Academic
Deans and Executive Directors, Chairs of the Schools, the College
Librarian, a representative from The College of The Bahamas Union
of Students (COBUS), a representative from the Union of Tertiary


Educators of The Bahamas (UTEB), the Vice President of Student
Affairs and the Director of Counselling and Health Services.

Institutional Priorities
We will continue to uphold the primacy of people as the
foundation and purpose of The College of The Bahamas.

Upholding and promoting the primacy of learning, we will
continue to develop high quality programmes, resources
and environments to provide learning opportunities, in and
beyond the formal classroom, for our students and others
who desire to learn.
The fact that The College's credits are accepted by more than two
hundred respected colleges and universities in Britain, Canada, the
United States and the Caribbean is testimony to the strength and
credibility of the institution's academic programme.

We will continue to commit resources to faculty and staff
development, believing wholeheartedly that they play an
essential role in student development.
Since 1998, The College of The Bahamas has invested more than
$3 million in faculty and staff development for the enhancement
of credentials. The greater part of these funds, $1,892,495.82,
supported faculty members in their pursuit of doctoral studies. Not
included in this sum is the yearly expenditure to afford College
personnel opportunities to participate in conferences, workshops
and other professional development initiatives.

Understanding that our students must function competitively
and effectively in the wider world, we will undertake to keep
instructional content and technology abreast of developments
beyond the classroom locally, regionally and internationally.
The College of The Bahamas has an excellent record of accords
and partnerships with other colleges and universities and major
corporate groups that enrich the learning environment and open
scholarship, exchange and career opportunities for students and
faculty.

As The College of The Bahamas receives a significant
subsidy from the Government of The Bahamas, we believe
that we are accountable to the people of this country.
Consequently, we will continue to diversify our sources
of revenue, manage wisely and honestly the resources
entrusted to us and report publicly on our stewardship.
Throughout the year, we acknowledge and document our
accountability by identifying performance goals and indicators to


help build high quality curricula, facilities, personnel, relations with
internal and external stakeholders and a sound financial plan.

We will create a national university in order to serve the
educational, cultural and economic needs of The Bahamas
for the 20th century.
As a university, The College of The Bahamas will
* expand professional and personal development opportunities for
the students, faculty and staff of the University who contribute to
the institution's growth and sustainability.
* expand our research base to position the institution to provide a
resource base for government and other agencies requiring high
quality data for decision-making.
*design and deliver signature programmes that embrace the unique
characteristics of The Bahamas and provide learning tools and
resources pertinent to all offerings.
* increase the breadth and depth of its collaboration with local
and regional partners to increase the competitive ability of the
country's primary industries: tourism and hospitality, financial
services, business, education.
* offer greater opportunities for cultural, social and economic
development for the people of The Bahamas.
* continue our stewardship role in the exploration and preservation
of the natural resources, historical and cultural heritage of The
Bahamas.

Educational Philosophy
The College of The Bahamas is committed to the creation and
dissemination of knowledge as a vehicle for the enhancement of
the talents of all who come within the ambit of the institution and
