UCC Orientation

One of the main functions of the Department of Student Affairs (DSA) is to organize UCC’s quarterly orientation sessions.  These sessions are planned to inform new students about the rules and regulations of the institution.  We also assist our new students in making a smooth transition and adjusting to university life while studying.

Chaplaincy

The Department also offers chaplaincy services to our student body. These advice & counselling sessions are by appointment with our Chaplain, Pastor Samuel Lewis. Pastor Lewis is also included in the other spiritual and motivational activities of DSS.

OUTREACH PROJECTS

Sports

DSA promotes physical and mental growth through numerous sporting activities. We have male and female football, track & field, & table tennis teams. UCC also participates in the inter-collegiate games.

 

Alumni Association

The Department of Student Affairs’ mandate is to build a viable Alumni Association.  DSA is building a database and getting the Alumni involved in the university‘s strategic goals and objectives.  The DSA foresees the Alumni as playing a valuable role in mentoring our current students to help them prepare for successful corporate citizenship.

 

Student Leadership

The University of the Commonwealth Caribbean believes that the Student Council is vital.  It provides an opportunity for students to be engaged in structured partnerships with the administration and faculty of the University.
