Citizen's Response to Kaieteur News Editorial "UG Needs better Leadership"

Terrence Blackman, Dean School of Science, Health & Technology Medgar Evers College, City University of New York

Dear Sir/Madam,

I trust that all is well. The Kaieteur News editorial, "UG Needs better Leadership",  published  May 04, 2017,  reflects a poor understanding of the University of Guyana's role in Guyana's development and place in the wider world. The University's mission is to generate, disseminate, and apply knowledge in the service of the community, the nation, and all mankind in an atmosphere of free and critical inquiry (Academic Board 2001). It aims to provide a place for education, learning, and research at the of the highest university standard in the arts and sciences throughout Guyana. It is a mission and legacy bequeathed to us by our forbearers who had the foresight and wisdom to dream this dream in 1963. Given this mission, what is the right framework for understanding and analyzing our national university? I humbly submit to the editor, that the guiding principles for a proper analysis of the university's leadership and trajectory are as follows:
