“We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.” II Corinthians 5:10
Begin each day at the Judgment Seat of Christ and calculate your moves in reverse from there. That’s where everything you do today will end up, so why not begin and end at the same place

Quality Assurance and Research Workshop

Introduction Caribbean Nazarene College (CNC) held a Quality Assurance and Research Workshop on September 28, 2012. This was a history-making first of its kind workshop for CNC! Detail of the workshop The workshop was coordinated by the CNC department of Quality Assurance and Research Enterprise, under the direction of Dr. Anthony Manswell.

The workshop was facilitated by Dr. Ruby S. Alleyne and Dr. Emily Dick-Forde, two respected leaders with expertise in quality assurance and research. Dr. Alleyne presented on the topic “Practicing and Monitoring Institutional Quality Assurance through Evidence Based Research”. Some concerns addressed within this topic included: What is involved in quality assurance? Who is part of quality assurance at an institution? What is the importance of data in institutional decision making? What is the function of the Quality Assurance Manager at an institution, etc.? Dr. Dick-Forde presented on the topic “Practicing Evidence Based Research in teaching and learning environments”. Some concerns addressed within this topic included: What is involved in quality assurance? Who is part of a research enterprise at an institution? What is the importance of data in institutional research and classroom instruction, etc.? There were thirty-two participants at the workshop, inclusive of a good mix of administrators, faculty, staff, and students. This broad cross-section of the college present at the workshop meant the college derived maximum benefit from the workshop, and allows for greater implementation of ideas within CNC’s Quality Management System.

Address by our 10th President

The Caribbean Nazarene College has evolved from the myopic, exclusive Bible School to be now the more inclusive, education provider in the Caribbean educational marketplace, committed to our mission “Quality, Holistic Higher Education in a Christian environment.”

“Quality, Holistic Higher Education in a Christian environment.”

In the year 1926, the then leaders of the Church of the Nazarene in the Caribbean, the exclusively English Field, took cognizance of the great need for an institution to prepare men and women for the pastoral ministry primarily, hence, the genesis of Nazarene Training College (NTC) which opened its doors in January 1951.  The curriculum having been expanded, but still pretty much exclusive to the theological track, the name changed from NTC to Caribbean Nazarene Theological College (CNTC).  The eventual inclusive diversification warranted the current name of the institution CNC.  This inclusiveness is now reflected in all facets of the colleges’ operations.  Diversification of this nature must continue to ensure the competitiveness of CNC.

CNC has been accredited by the Caribbean Evangelical Theological Association (CETA) since 1996, registered with the Ministry of Science, Technology and Tertiary Education (STTE) since 2006, is currently a candidate for accreditation by the Accreditation Council of Trinidad and Tobago (ACTT) and is aspiring to full university status.  Having stated all of the above, the theological emphasis of CNC has not been compromised. It is embedded in our mission statement, has been our ancient landmark, and shall be our major distinctive.

I implore you to come visit us on campus where nature at its best is realized.

God bless you.

Scoffield Eversley, Th.D.
President (Emeritus)
