The UWI picks 3 new professors

DR Jean-Pierre Lou­boutin, of the Faculty of Medical Sciences, Mona, Jamaica, and Drs Elizabeth Walcott-Hackshaw and Jerome De Lisle, both of the Faculty of Humanities and Education, St Augustine, are the newest professors at The University of the West Indies (The UWI).

The three were recently promoted to the highest academic rank at the institution, following a rigorous assessment process which included a review of their respec­tive distinguished and original works and professional activities, as well as their contribu­tions to the enhancement of the university’s reputation, The UWI said in a statement yesterday from its regional headquarters in Jam­aica.

At The UWI, promotion to a professorship must also be supported by external assessors selected by the vice-chancellor after consultation with the dean of the ap­plicant’s respective faculty.

The endorsements from external assessors for Louboutin, Walcott-Hackshaw and De Lisle confirm their exemplary performance and justified their promotion to the rank of professor, The UWI stated.

Louboutin is now Pro­fessor in Anatomy, Dr Walcott-Hackshaw Pro­-fes­sor in French Litera­ture and Creative Wri­ting and Dr Jerome De Lisle holds the title Professor in Education Leadership.
These appointments were effective September 28. Read more
