UB's Historic January Graduation 2010

One ceremony was held at the UB Recreation and
Sports Center for all four campuses on January 16.

The University of Belize (UB) was the
host organization for officials of the
European Commission and
representatives of 14 member
universities from Europe and from
Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP)
countries. One highlight of the series
of meetings and events, held Feb. 3-5,
was a press conference called to
provide an update on EU-funded
projects in Belize as well as to update
on the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship
Lot 10 program. The program is
financed by the European Union
through its International Institute for
Geo-Information Science and Earth
Observation. The EU divides its
scholarship program in groups, and
Belize joined the ACP group in 2008
at the meeting held in the Netherlands.
UB secured 9 scholarships for its
faculty, staff and students. 6 were for
Master's degrees at universities in
France, Germany, Portugal, Spain and
Sweden for up to 2 years, and 3 were
for 1-month staff exchanges.
(See page 5 for follow up survey to the
meeting and for a feature on UB's Erasmus
scholar, Tracy Sangster, who has returned
with her Master's degree.)
January 16, 2010 was a historic moment
for UB. It held its first midyear
graduation, and those participating were
graduates from July and December 2009.
The guest speaker was UB's Assistant
Provost, Dr. Cynthia Thompson who
spoke on the "UB-We Care" theme. She
urged the 295 graduates to embrace life's
challenges as opportunities to grow. The
VP of the UB Alumni Association, Mrs.
Elma Arzu, also launched UB's Haiti
appeal fund at the graduation.

UB's Ritamae Hyde & Coordinator Cesar Ross
UB's History and Anthropology program presented a stimulating three-day celebration/
exhibition of the Pan-Africanist Movement and its People from Feb. 24 26 at the Jaguar
Auditorium, Belmopan campus. This time was selected to tie in with the celebration of
Black History Month; as well, 2010 marks the bicentennial of Latin American
Independence, and the region has a large pan African population. The purpose is to look
at the movement, its exemplary figures and their contributions towards the liberation of
Africa and the empowerment of all people in the Diaspora.
The exhibition was three-dimensional, incorporating music, literature and film (movie/
documentary). It opened with keynote speakers and presenters who highlighted the
significance of the Pan-Africanist movement, as well as set the stage for other
celebratory events outlined in the program. Keynote speaker was Ambassador Adalbert
Tucker. Also addressing were UB's Dr. Joseph Iyo and Dean Wilma Wright. Coordinator
of the History and Anthropology Program, Cesar Ross thanked lecturers Ritamae Hyde,
Dr. Iyo and Joseph Sampson who were instrumental in the planning. Thanks also to
Belize Natural Energy, SMART, BEL, Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and UB's
History students who supported. The celebration also featured a Kriol drum presentation
by Emmeth Young, a Garifuna drum presentation by Dale Aranda, readings and film
screenings and world renowned Belizean artist Penn Cayetano.

Research Institute, shares the following message: We successfully defended the trophy for 2010! I thank Paul Morgan for
bringing the team to this juncture in UB's young history. Under his guidance, the young men have proven to be true scoring
machines with some clinical passing techniques that have created problems for the best of opponents to date.

On February 9, the UB Science Department hosted a talk called "Water
Rccication Opportunity Spectrum" at the George Price Center on the
llcinc A Tool for Making Better Decisions to Provide High Quality and
Di\cise Water-Based Recreation/Tourism Opportunities. The presenter
was Dr. Glenn Haas, professor at the College of Natural Resources,
Colorado State University. He has worked in Belize for 20 years and was
one of the lead consultants in the design of the Protected Areas
Conservation Trust and national policies for protected area management.

At the end of 2009, Tracy Sangster completed her Master's degree program through a
scholarship from the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship fund. Tracy was a featured speaker at the
February 4, 2010 press conference at the Radisson Hotel in Belize City (See story on page
1). Her degree is in English Studies from Freie Universitat in Berlin, Germany. Tracy's
words resonated with the audience, both those on site and the thousands who heard her in
news clips of every major television and radio station in the country. She said, in part, the
following: E\ ci) experience that you have outside of yourself is enriching and this is what
Erasmus Mundus has done for me. It has enriched my international experience and I have
been able to come back to Belize and share that with my students..." Incidentally, kudos to
Tracy who is already proving just how serious she is about sharing this with her students;
she has already started a tutoring program for UB Black Jaguars team members! More on
this in our next issue!

At the press conference, which had the participation of 14 member universities from
African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries and from Europe, Tracy also said that UB is
"on a drive to update our university staff and faculty because we want to be on the cutting
edge in the Caribbean. We certainly want to run with the horses. We want to be able to say
that all people are qualified and we have been exposed to the international arena, interacting
with Europe, North America and other major continents like Africa." In the classroom,
Tracy instills and motivates her students in exciting approaches to learning. The dean,
faculty members and staff of the Faculty of Education and Arts, and the entire UB family,
welcome back Tracy to the classroom and the community! Her master's thesis was entitled
"Caribbean Kriol Identity in Language, Literature, and Culture."

UB's Tracy Sangster
enthralls the press and|
thousands listening to her
riveting message as she
shares the benefits of her
Erasmus Mundus experience.

UB Lecturers and Recruitment 2010 i

Another annual event is underway-it's
UB's recruitment drive! Headed by
Admissions Coordinator Andrea NIacaroni & Spiagheli Bridge
Middleton, a team has been going on
scheduled visits to high schools
countrywide; it began in February at
Orange Walk Technical High School
and concludes in March. This year, the
Admissions office has over 40 schools
on its itinerary for visits. Deadline for
application to enter UB for the August
2010 semester is March 26. Application A m, e: E i'ieerini lecturer LI.. tI Carill |

Lecturers from UB's 4 faculties rotate in accompanying the recruitment team. Given tll
technical focus of the OW Technical High visit, Engineering lecturer Lloyd Car il.:
accompanied the team there, and his presentation included video clips of exciting student
projects, like one for architecture students last semester. The students had to design a
bridge using macaroni, spaghetti, silicone and glue. Straw and string were optional; the
winning sample had to withstand certain loads of weight ranging from 5 to 15 kilograms
or more, depending on the design. Kudos! Mr. Carillo says he wants to enter UB next time
in the competition at his alma mater, Instituto Politecnico de Chetumal.

BDARRT UPDATE: Call for Members

Hilario Ical of the UB-BDARRT Club calls on interested
UB students to join the BDARRT club or just take part in
training sessions from time to time. The name is the
Belize Disaster and Rescue Response Team (BDARRT)
and at the start of last semester, the UB BULLETIN
featured the launch of this club, which works with
guidance from the country's national teams. Most
recently, UB-BDARRT conducted a three (3) day training
in preparation for the La Ruta Maya River Challenge in
March. The training took place from February 19-21 at the
Banana Bank Lodge. This training is done yearly as a
refresher course for BDARRT members and as an
introduction to water safety for other interested persons.
This training is free of cost; however, individuals are
expected to provide their own gear and food. A
comprehensive list of equipment required is also the
responsibility of the participants, and this list ranges from
sleeping bags or hammocks to helmets, flashlights and so
on. The club also rents equipment to those who do not
own. Contact: Hilario Ical at 661-8634.

Take the ERASMUS Survey!
The representatives of the EU at the meeting of
Consortium of Universities in the Erasmus Mundus
Lot 10 that met in Belize provided information
about a new opportunity for student and faculty
mobility between and within ACP (Africa,
Caribbean, and Pacific) countries. The concept
paper is currently being developed. The
representatives that visited are asking students,
academic staff and management staff to complete a
survey to find out if there is interest in exchange
programs between and within ACP countries. This
scheme is not about scholarships to enable
institutions in the ACP countries to receive students
or teachers from universities in Europe, the United
States or Australia. It is about scholarships that
make it possible for students and academics to be
mobile within Africa, the Caribbean or the Pacific
or even between these areas. Please go online,
check out the survey site and submit your views;
also encourage faculty and students to do the same.
Please follow the link below for the survey
