As the board and administrators of the Northern Caribbean University (NCU) seek to move the institution forward through strategised visioning, a strong warning has been given by Pastor Charles Brevitt, who is adamant that there needs to be change.

"If we are going to move this institution forward, we need unity. We are a divided people ... . We spend money we don't have on things we don't need to impress people we don't like ... . We can't even stand to see each other succeed. Most workers are average and below par and have no desire to develop their competence so they look for connections," charged Brevitt.

He was addressing hundreds of workers at a recent retiree banquet on the campus.

"No organisation can succeed on the perpetuation of mediocrity ... . For if you are only as good today as you were yesterday, you will be outdated by tomorrow ... . We need tenacity [and] perseverance," he echoed and further mentioned the need for persons to move with the changing times. "Don't just mark time. Make progress, bloom where you are planted, [and] never allow your organisation to outgrow you."
