We see ourselves as among the premier promoters of the study of Caribbean civilization who, through our research, will create new insights and methodologies.  We aim to create individuals aware of their identity and committed to community service, heritage management and region-centered historiography.  We hope to increase the historical consciousness of Caribbean peoples and engender recognition of the importance of a knowledge of the past in policy formulation in the region. At the undergraduate level, we have recently introduced two (2) new courses HIST 1901 Introduction to Heritage Studies and HIST 2901 Heritage Tourism, Management and Preservation in the Caribbean.
