NASSAU, BAHAMAS – The resignation of University of The Bahamas President Dr. Erik Rolland caught many by surprise as the educator had only held office for less than a year.

After a lengthy, exhaustive process, Dr. Rolland was named UB President in May 2022.

Shortly after he was named, Education Minister Glenys Hanna-Martin distanced the Davis administration from the decision of the board of University of The Bahamas to appoint a non-Bahamian president of the institution, saying she expects that “in short order” a Bahamian will ascend to the top post.

With Dr. Rolland now on his way out, Student Government Association President Matthew Williams says the Rolland benefitted the association and students.

Williams also reflects on the “little instances” that made Rolland stand out.

In a press release, the university stating Jayne Hodder, who served as president of the then College of The Bahamas between 2006 and 2010 will serve as acting president until July 2025.

Williams says he wants current and future leaders of the university to take the institution to the next level.
