The University of the South Pacific recently featured in the globally acclaimed entrepreneurship and leadership magazine, Forbes.
The Forbes article “Why Equitable Access to Quality Higher Education Matters More Than Ever” highlighted the University’s ability to easily “adapt to new ways of teaching, learning and researching,” during and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
