The University of the South Pacific (USP) extended its heartfelt sympathy to the families and friends of the late President Baldwin Womtelo Lonsdale, the government and people of Vanuatu.
President Lonsdale served as the Chancellor of USP for a period of one year from July 2015 to 2016 with distinction, said the Acting Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Derrick Armstrong.
