The St. Augustine Campus celebrated International Week (iWeek) from October 5 to 9, 2015 under the theme Embrace Our World. iWeek provides a platform from which the campus can enhance the understanding of internationalisation and the significant contribution it makes in its community and throughout the world.
According to Director of the Campus’ Office of Institutional Advancement and Internationalisation, Sharan Singh, “The project is hinged on the cooperation of a number of departments of The UWI, as the mandate for internationalisation lies with all of us and it is imperative that we get university staff and students interested and actively involved in embracing this concept.”
The week-long event comprised a series of educational, cultural and recreational events designed to foster interest in the global community. Staff and students took part in the Study Abroad Fair, and got very creative at the International Dress Day campus competition. (The Marketing & Communications Office won for their portrayal of Cuba.)
The opening ceremony featured traditional dances performed by students of the Pacific Islands.
