GUEST POST: ‘Calling UWI Geographers!’

Recent visitors at the UWI Museum included Cecille Harriott Depass who has been inspired to pull together a memorial to the early development of the University of the West Indies Geography Department. We’re happy to facilitate her call for engagement and participation:

GIVING HONOUR

In its fifty years of awarding Honorary Degrees (2016 marks 51), the UWI has honoured 437 Caribbean nationals and international icons whose achievements have impacted the region.

UWI EMERGES FROM UCWI

Today, the University of the West Indies is a full-blown, degree granting institution with seven faculties across four campuses and some 50,000 students! Fifty-six years ago, on July 1, 1962, it blossomed out of its initial incarnation as the University College of the West Indies (UCWI), which had been chartered in 1948/49, the same year it took its first batch of 33 pioneering medical students from across the Caribbean region. The UCWI granted its degrees through a special association with the University of London.

VIDEO: The UWI MUSEUM AT A SPRINT!

Sprints are in the air, so it seems a good time to share a 25-second promo on the UWI Museum produced by a creative colleague for use around the University of the West Indies (UWI)s Mona Campus in Kingston, Jamaica.
