Ross University will not be returning to Dominica after 40 years
Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit says the impacts of Tropical Storm Erika and Hurricane Maria were the driving forces behind a decision by the Board of Ross University School of Medicine to relocate outside of Dominica.
The Prime Minister on Friday morning announced that the University will not be returning to Dominica after operating here for forty years.
Skerrit says however the University has kept open the possibilities of a return of certain parts of its operations.
The Prime Minister further states that Dominicans will continue to have access to the scholarships being offered by Ross University.
He also revealed Government’s intentions to meet with the business owners affected by the closure of the Medical School.
