The UB’s Two Leadership Roles Still Stand Vacant

The University of Belize’s board of trustees have not yet chosen the institution’s two top leadership posts. Vacancies were announced by the university that it is looking for a new president and a vice president.
The person holding over is Dr. Vincent Palacio, who spoke briefly about that process.Dr.Vincent Palacio, Interim President, University of Belize: “Regarding the search I have no update on that. That is something that is managed by the board of trustees for obvious reasons and yes I applied for the post. Regarding the vice president the ad is out and we believe we have three more weeks before that is closed and then that recruitment selection and interview will take place at that point.” 

Reporter: So by and large it’s the board’s responsibility to ensure that those two capacities are filled. 

Dr.Vincent Palacio, Interim President, University of Belize:  “Just the president so the vice president we are looking at the different steps in getting that done but of course the board will have it say as well.” 

As Dr. Palacio noted, he has applied to continue in the post as the substantive president. The university’s board is chaired by attorney-at-law, Anthony Sylvestre.
