University of The Bahamas

University of The Bahamas was chartered on 10th November 2016 by an Act of Parliament of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas.  UB had its genesis in the College of The Bahamas which came into force in 1974 through the amalgamation of four institutions: The Bahamas Teachers’ College, San Salvador Teachers’ College, C.R. Walker Technical College and the sixth form programme of the Government High School.  In February 1977, when the then Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, Rt. Hon. Lynden O. Pindling, officially opened the College, he foreshadowed that the institution would eventually become the University of The Bahamas:  “And after all of this, what will we have? Ten years from now we will have developed the University of The Bahamas….and the College of The Bahamas will have given way to the University of The Bahamas.”  With these words, the creation of the University was inevitable.
