Office Of The President


Mr. Alan Slusher

Welcome to the University of Belize, the country’s national university and your partner in development through higher education. 

Whether you are here to get an associate’s degree, a bachelor’s degree, a certificate, or to polish professional skills and pursue personal interests, UB has the academic package you need to succeed.  With campuses in Belmopan, Belize City, Central Farm, and Punta Gorda and research stations on Calabash and Hunting Cayes, UB makes every effort to provide education and services where they are needed. The past few years have also seen the dramatic strengthening and development of on-line courses and the introduction of a virtual library base that gives students and faculty throughout the UB system access to nearly academic 20,000 titles and 700 journals.  As a student centered university, UB is invested in providing services critical to your success as a student.  Student support systems include scholarships, student housing, intra-mural sports, daycare facilities, counseling services, and wellness centers, to name just a few.

At UB we are proud of our expansive and rigorous curriculum, as well as the many opportunities for learning that we offer outside the classroom. Small class sizes, low student-teacher ratios, and the availability of UB lecturers to consult you on academic and personal matters customize your educational experience.  University fora, the opportunity to parti-cipate in university research projects, field courses and internships ground your learning in real world experiences and enrich your educational experience.

Education is a journey, and the UB team is committed to ensuring that you achieve your destination, enjoy yourself, and learn more about your world along the way.  Administrators, faculty, and staff at UB realize that education is more than a series of classes, reading assignments and exams.  Education is the vehicle for personal and social development and the means whereby students examine values and forge their identities, becoming successful individuals and contributing members of their communities. 

On behalf of the entire university community, thank you for choosing the University of Belize. University of Belize is about “students first.”  We are excited you are here, and we look forward to helping you achieve your plans for a higher education and a promising future.

Best wishes,

President, University of Belize
