UB Celebration Cake-Cutting
The Plaque Unveiling at the entrance of the University of The Bahamas, and Charter Ceremony for the University of The Bahamas and the Inauguration of Dr. Rodney D. Smith as President at Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium, took place on Thursday, November 10, 2016. The transition from college to university comprised an historic moment for the nation.
The Road to University Charter Week began with a Service of Thanksgiving at Christ Church Cathedral on Sunday, November 6; a special ‘UB Blue! Day’ during which the college community, and the nation, celebrated the university’s royal blue colour, on Monday; a Panel of Presidents, featuring university presidents in compelling discussion on the role and relevance of a university within a community nationally, regionally, and internationally, on Wednesday; and the university Plaque Unveiling and Charter Ceremony & President’s Inauguration on Thursday.
After the Charter official events, witnessed by government officials, the academic community, UB students, young high school students, and members of the general public, a Cake-Cutting and Toast was held at the stadium to celebrate the momentous occasion.
