Description


In April 1995, the Upper Chamber of Grenada’s Parliament passed the T.A. Marryshow Act
establishing the T.A. Marryshow Community College as a statutory body governed by a council,
making the College a fully fledged legally-unified educational institution serving the postsecondary, tertiary and further educational needs of the Grenadian population.
The Act was amended in 1996 but not officially proclaimed until March 1, 2001. Hence, by any
measure – and certainly in comparison to other colleges in the region, TAMCC is a very young
institution. During its short history, the College has had (four) wholly new Governing Councils,
five different principals and a succession of senior managers. This constant change of “players”
has been problematic for – and, no doubt impeded – the development of the College.
The 1996 Act stopped short of allowing the College to become fully “statutorised”. Lands and
buildings (with the exception of the Tanteen Campus) were not vested to the College. Also, the
Act allowed members of the Public Service Commission (PSC) and Ministry of Education (MOE)
to retain their status as government employees while working at the College. Both of these
provisions have served to restrict the autonomy of the College. Recently, however, the College
has gained title-in-trust to its lands and buildings at the Tanteen Campus, and both the Ministry
and the College are engaged in initiatives aimed at reconciling the status of PSC and Ministry
employees.
In 1996/97 TAMCC had a total enrolment of 872 students in combined A Level/Associate
Degrees, secretarial/commerce studies, technical/engineering studies, hospitality studies,
teacher training and agricultural/food science studies. More than half of the students were
enrolled in combined A Levels/Associate Degree programmes. Over the ensuing decade,
student numbers swelled to 2056 – an increase of 237%. This trend continues in 2010/2011
when the total enrollment was recorded as two thousand two hundred and thirty six (2,236) in
all three Schools of the College demonstrating the increasing value of the college to the nation.
Within the last two academic years, however, the student population experienced gradual
declines for various reasons, including but not limited to, the strict compliance of the
matriculation requirements to the various programmes, difficult economic environment,
removal of the Government transportation subsidy for students coming from the outer
parishes, students moving from the secondary schools directly to other tertiary institutions and
competing training programmes by the Government that pays a stipend to students pursuing
training programmes under the New Imani Initiative. In this regard, at the commencement of
the new 2013-2014 academic year, student enrollment at the College stands at 1,468
