Faculty & Staff Opportunities

The UWI, St. Augustine Campus sees the mobility of faculty and staff between our campus and our international partners as a core component of our internationalization and capacity building strategies.

Many of the UWI's current collaborative agreements with institutions from around the world contain provisions that allow for the exchange of faculty and staff. These exchanges can take place in the form of short term visits, semester long exchanges or even longer forms of mobility based upon specific objectives of the faculty/staff member.

Interested faculty and staff, either from the UWI or not, should contact The International Office in order to develop the customized mobility.

UWI Faculty and Staff can consult the following table for guidance on opportunities available with our international partners (please click here)
