By Benjamin Flowers: After serving a year as Interim President of the University of Belize (UB), Dr. Vincent Palacio has been officially appointed to the post of President.

Palacio took on the role as Interim President when former President Professor Emeritus Clement Sankat stepped down at the end of July, 2021.

Dr. Palacio was among at least five applicants for the post and was recommended by a Searching Committee that reviewed the applications. Following the committee’s recommendation, Prime Minister John Briceno, in consultation with Leader of the Opposition Moses “Shyne” Barrow, advised Governor General Dame Froyla Tzalam on Dr. Palacio’s appointment.

Dr. Palacio holds a doctoral degree from Indiana State University and has been at UB for many years serving in capacities such as assistant professor, and later as the Dean of the Faculty of Management and Social Science, which he has been since 2005.

Dr. Palacio is also credited as a contributing author on several publications including the Handbook on the Economics of Ecosystem Services and Biodiversity, Belize Tourism Board’s National Tour Guide Trainers Manual (2007), and the Belize Code of Practice for Water Sports Activities (2019).

Simultaneously, UB officially appointed Dr. Sherlene Enriquez-Savery to the post of vice President. She had previously served as Interim Vice President for the university.
