UCCI aligns itself with internationally-recognised university academic standards. The University will be focusing on five key areas including Learning Experience, Curriculum, Instruction, Faculty and Quality Assurance. These new standards were implemented at the beginning of the school year and are a a part of the three-pronged nature of the University’s strategic 2019-2024 plan.

Each of these new Academic Standards provide strategic focus for the university. The approach includes student centeredness, a well resourced campus and becoming an engine of economic development, innovation and social change. This strategic development is to ensure the university is able to meet its mission of providing higher learning that contributes to our local and global societies.

Dr Livingston Smith, Vice President and Provost, stated “As the University matures to take its rightful place in the Cayman Islands; UCCI is reinventing how we bring out the best in our students and future achievers. We want to be known as an institution of standards, where parents are proud to send their children as their first choice and employers are competing to employ our graduates. He continued on to say “The university is in transformational mode and these changes will propel the institution forward and will have a far-ranging impact on the wider society.”

With this new focus, UCCI will continue to concentrate on the level of education, social and cultural capital, advanced subject matter expertise and cognitive development. These initiatives nurture a civic responsibility from each of the students and provides school leavers and adults with a lifetime of personal and professional successes.
