        Continuing,  the  University  President  implored
        administrators, alumni, retirees, members of the clergy,
        the NCU Board and the community to recognise the
        value of NCU to Manchester, Jamaica, the Caribbean
        and the world. He asked them to commit themselves
        to do everything possible to ensure that the financial
        and human resources are available to meet the needs
        of the University and to ensure its sustainability  for
        generations to come.

        He said that 2019, was a pivotal year in the life of the
        university as we celebrated our first centennial in the
        parish of Manchester, our 20  year being chartered as
        a university, and enjoying the benefits of institutional
        accreditation from the University Council of Jamaica,
        which has received certification from the International
        Organization for Standardization (ISO).

        Dr Edwards added:  “At  NCU, we have  a  deep  and
        abiding  commitment  to whole-person education,
        excellence, innovation, spiritual values, and character
