This release serves to inform the community that the Board of Governors of the University College of the Cayman Islands has appointed Dr J.D. Mosley-Matchett to be the Interim Acting President and CEO of the University College until such time as a new President and CEO has been appointed.
Dr Mosley-Matchett currently serves the University College of the Cayman Islands as Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs. She joined the University College in August of 2009 as a seasoned educator with more than a decade of successful teaching experience at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Her educational credentials include a Ph.D. in Business Administration and an MBA from the University of Texas at Arlington; a Juris Doctor (law degree) from the Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas; and a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineer Technology from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia.
Dr. Mosley-Matchett considers her most notable administrative accomplishments during her term at the University College are the pursuit and achievement of discipline-level accreditation for UCCI’s Business Studies Department in 2017 from the International Accreditation Council for Business Education, and the first-time institutional accreditation in 2015 from the British-based Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges & Universities (ASIC). She led UCCI’s effort to gain accreditation from both organizations and is currently spearheading UCCI’s institutional preparations to achieve US-based regional accreditation.
The Board of Governors looks forward to further Academic achievements during Dr Mosley Matchett’s term in Office and looks forward to working with her.
