The University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona Campus, has taken the decision to name the recently built medical sciences building, ‘The McDonald Building’.

It’s being named in honour of former dean of the faculty of medical sciences and current principal of the Mona Campus Professor Archibald McDonald.

Registrar of the UWI Mona Campus, Dr Camille Bell Hutchinson, says it was McDonald’s insistence, while he was dean, which led to construction of the building.

The university has also disclosed that it is in the process of developing a complex to house an examination centre, an indoor sports centre and facility to seat over 10 thousand people.

It says it hopes to get the project started by the first quarter of 2017.
