Formal launch activities for The UWI Five Islands began yesterday with a public ecumenical service at The St. John’s Cathedral. View a recording of that service here.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Hilary Beckles noted that “this is a matter of great pride for The University of the West Indies as it continues its onward march across the Caribbean, serving the development needs of our countries.” He added, “The UWI was created to serve all our people equally. These are difficult financial times for the region but we must not succumb to self-doubt. Rather, more than ever we must stand together.” Read the full release on the celebrations here.

The fourth landed campus, and fifth campus of The UWI, officially began operations on August 25 and is currently registering students for programmes across three schools: Health and Behavioural Sciences; Humanities and Education; Management, Sciences and Technology.

We welcome the Five Islands Campus to our UWI family!
