Please provide a brief description of your academic structure:

The CEO of the of the University at this time is the Provost who reports to the Board of Trustees. The Provost is advised by a body called the Provost Council which consists of the 3 Deans, the registrar and the Director of Student Services.
Please describe briefly any activities your institution is already carrying out, which are relevant to UNAI and its principles: 
GU provides financial assistance by way of low interest student loans, and a variety of scholarships to students in need. We are committed to sustainable development for Belize, and apply principles of sustainable development on campus, and require all students to take a course on sustainable development. And, we partner with the UNDP's IOM to offer certificate courses protecting migrants to members of the public and private sectors who come into direct contact with migrants in the course of their daily lives. We will also offer these courses to our students as well. Our Criminal Justice and Sociology programs and courses also bring students into contact with incarcerated youth and other vulnerable groups as a means of understanding their realities. We hope to be able to mentor some of these in the future.
