Welcome to the University of Belize!

We are Belize’s national university oriented to the provision of quality, relevant, and affordable higher education, and guided by the conviction that UB is a crucial gateway to national development, individual advancement, and the cultivation of an informed and empowered citizenry.

At UB, we recognize that education at this level must promote a spirit of excellence, and a sense of professionalism; nurture a spirit of inquiry and innovation; engender a commitment to life-long learning; and foster a need for shared responsibility and a resolute commitment to national development. To fulfill this mandate, UB offers various undergraduate degrees which are relevant to Belize’s development and responsive to the needs and aspirations of the individual. Our academic programs are designed to promote an understanding of theory as well as the practical application of the discipline.

UB is at an exciting time in its history. As we celebrate ten years of existence, we take pause to reflect on our lived experiences and on the social, political, and historical context of those experiences. We highlight not only our successes throughout these years, but also our current challenges, and future prospects. We remain true to our mission and the principles on which we were founded, even while we forge ahead, endowed with a new vision for the next five years.

As Provost of UB, it is my fervent desire that you will join us in this exciting new journey. Together with our qualified faculty, students, and other stakeholders, we will reframe our UB culture to embody the quest for academic excellence, inquiry and innovation, shared responsibility, and national and personal development. This reinvigorated culture will be the fabric that binds us together as we work towards fulfilling the expectations of our students and the expectations of our society. We will work together to realize our vision which will see exciting new programs, graduate degrees, research, distance learning, and student academic and personal services become part of the UB tradition.

I invite you to become a part of the University of Belize whether as a student, faculty, friend, or donor. We are here to serve you and we are committed to doing so with great enthusiasm!
