Wilson Graduate Centre stands as a symbol of the University’s progression. It is named in honour of former College Council Chairman Sir Franklyn R. Wilson who, along with his wife Sharon Lady Wilson, donated $1 million towards its construction, matching a $1 million gift from RBC Royal Bank of Canada. Once completed, the Centre will act as a catalyst for innovative graduate programmes that support and drive national development and give The Bahamas a competitive advantage. The energy-efficient facility comprises a 110-seat lecture theatre, conference room, classrooms and administrative office spaces. Construction is expected to be completed in early 2017.
