TAMCC/McMaster's Collaboration


TAMCC / McMaster's Institutional Change Collaborative project

“Mr. Nicholas Brathwaite Jr. a Grenadian residing in North America has a vision of transforming T.A. Marryshow Community College (TAMCC) into the top tertiary learning institution in the Caribbean. Achieving this vision will empower youth in Grenada to pursue and continue higher education, to participate in and shape the labour market and to serve society at large. In 2012 Mr. Brathwaite established a full Scholarship for Grenadian students to complete an undergraduate program at McMaster University in Canada. He is now encouraging a partnership among TAMCC, the Grenadian Government, and McMaster University to guide TAMCC’s transformation.” In this regard, TAMCC and McMaster have agreed to commence the process while the formal MOU is being finalized for signing.

McMaster has indicated its willingness to visit TAMCC sometime in early November to roll out the collaboration initiative. It is essential that TAMCC establish some work groups to facilitate the agenda and prepare for the visit. Some key persons have been identified as team leaders and the focal point to drive the change agenda.

Ongoing conversations between the two institutions have focused on critical discussions about performance, that is, how new skills acquired through McMaster’s intervention will be translated into a transparent, process-oriented performance metrics that improve the quality of the student experience. Equally important is to identify strengths and building on these to differentiate TAMCC and fill the existing gaps that attend to the needs of the marketplace while identifying clear pathways that lead student to pursue higher education.

A brainstorming session and discussion which took place last June 2016 identified a number of areas that need immediate attention in which management, faculty and students can participate. Consequently, work groups have been established and assigned tasks which are summarized as main priority areas related to (i) curriculum change, (ii) faculty development, (iii) student engagement and (iv) learning commons. This is represented in the form of a framework for implementation which the two institutions have agreed upon. These work groups will be coordinated by a steering committee headed by a senior member of staff.

This release is the beginning of a planned internal and public sensitization campaign that is also aimed at involving the entire TAMCC community.

Financial Support for Akayden Joshua Wilson

Dear Faculty, Students, Staff, Alumni and Supporters,
The T. A. Marryshow Community College solicit your 

support to Mr. Joshua Wilson within the Department of IT Services.

His son Akayden Joshua Wilson who is only five years old was diagnosed with Wilms' tumour on March 17 2016.

He had surgery on March 22 2016 when the tumour and his left kidney were removed and 2 weeks later diagnosed with cancer. He started treatment end of May due to medications not being available in the country.  

While undergoing treatment every Friday, there were setbacks due to low white blood cells.

On August 20th, the cancer spread to his lungs therefore he needs urgent radiology treatment along with 
chemotherapy. Radiation is not available in our country Grenada therefore external treatment is required

He is presently at the General Hospital and is in dire need of USD $30,000 to obtain treatment in Antigua.
