In continuation to the University strategy for growth, Ms. Genève Phillip joins the USM family
Pond island:— USM The University of St. Martin expands its resources and would like to introduce the Dean of Academics Ms. Genève Phillip. Dean Philip describes herself as the quintessential Caribbean woman, with the vision and ambition to contribute to the creation of a better region through various mediums of engagement and advocacy. Genève has attained a BSc in Public Sector Management, Postgraduate Diploma in International Relations and an MSc in Global Studies from the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus. She is currently reading for her PhD in International Relations, at The UWI Institute of International Relations, which is scheduled for completion this year.
Dean Phillip has been in academia for the past ten (10) years and has gained a significant degree of exposure for her work, having been invited to present at conferences throughout the Caribbean region, North America and Europe. Genève worked at the University of Prince Edward Island in Canada and the University of the West Indies in Trinidad. Her hope is to increase the regional and international visibility of USM by way of her professional memberships in the Caribbean Studies Association, the International Studies Association and the International Small Island Studies Association among others.
She brings to USM, an awareness of and familiarity with the Caribbean region, coupled with a substantial degree of cultural intelligence, which enables her to function in and adapt to any global setting. What she hopes primarily to accomplish at USM, is the fostering of an environment where; students will receive the educational experience in which they are confident in the education systems in our region and are encouraged to stay! Where Faculty feels appreciated and adequately is rewarded for their efforts. And both academic and non-academic staff could see themselves as being collectively responsible for fostering a community of comradery, mutual respect and support.
