WHAT IS THE UTech Jamaica GOVERNMENT SUBVENTION ISSUE?

Recent news reports tell us that the House of Representatives has approved the second Supplementary Estimates. The Government plans to spend an additional $11.45 billion for this financial year. The Minister of Finance’s statement on the matter should be noted. He said that this “favourable fiscal performance resulted from a confluence of higher than projected revenue and grants and below programmed expenditure”.

Among the increases that were announced was a $963-million increase in subvention for The University of the West Indies (UWI). There is no doubt that UWI deserves every bit of these funds, and more. Stakeholders at the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech) had been expectant that there would be an increase in subvention. But, alas! Not a penny for the national university. There is no evidence so far that efforts are being made to address the glaring inequity in the per student subvention allocation for UTech’s students. Why was UTech ignored, again?

This song “Perhaps Love” by John Denver and sung with Placido Domingo, is Dedicated to All Alumni of UTech, Jamaica.
Enjoy Your Day! Enjoy Your Life!
We Appreciate Your Consideration and Support Throughout The Years!

Perhaps Love – John Denver

Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home
