Vice-Chancellor's Reports and Special Reports to the University Council

Posted Monday, May 18, 2020


The UWI is currently engaged in a deep dive discourse on higher education funding within the Caribbean context. It is arguably one of the main development challenges facing our regional community. The University is preparing for the roll out of a new model in which the private sector and our 100,000 alumni will be invited to invest at a time when its reputation as a globally elite university has never been higher. The report covers the journey of this high standing as well as highlights of the University’s successes and milestone achievements for the 2018/2019 academic year.

Building an Entrepreneurial UWI

In addition to fulfilling its core business of education and conducting research in service to the region, The UWI is now pursuing a third major goal—innovation and entrepreneurship—as part of its overall developmental agenda. Each of The UWI’s five campuses has begun establishing facilities and services in support of this focus and it has led to a heightened interest in innovation and entrepreneurship among staff and students. This report highlights the initiatives underway as the University vigorously pursues this exciting programme of becoming more entrepreneurial. To view the full report, please click here.

Leading Climate Action

Never before have universities been so central to the global agenda of sustainable development and particularly the science behind an urgent response to climate change. Addressing climate change has long been a priority for The UWI and over its seven decades of existence, this priority has resulted in a number of initiatives with global impact. The UWI is also now recognised by the International Association of Universities (IAU) as the global leader in the mobilisation of research and advocacy for a climate smart world. This special report features the University’s research, teaching, advocacy, sustainable practices and its regional and international partnerships as part of its work in support of the climate action agenda.
