The University of Guyana 
*****
Commencement Address Delivered by Dr. Vincent Adams
on the Occasion of
The Fiftieth Convocation on November 12, 2016

Your Excellency President David Granger, Honorable Ministers of the Government, Pro-Chancellor Bibi Shadick, Vice Chancellor Ivelaw Griffith, Members of the faculty and staff, other distinguished guests, other attendees, friends, and most importantly, the very reason why we are here today – the members of the University of Guyana class of 2016. Congratulations!!
Let me also take this opportunity to congratulate my very dear friend and fellow UG alumnus, Vice Chancellor Griffith for first surviving his first four and one-half months in office; but on a more serious note, thank him for putting his money where his mouth is, by his returning home to serve in this most critical position of Vice Chancellor, leading the renaissance of this great institution in its underpinning of this nation’s enormous future. UG is in great hands with him at its helm.         Continue reading
