Alumni Ambassadors

THE VICE CHANCELLOR'S ALUMNI AMBASSADORS 

The Alumni Ambassadors are an elite cadre of professionals, who after being inducted in the Vice Chancellor's UWI STAT Ambassadorial Corps, continue to have a permanent link to the UWI after graduation and act as Alumni Ambassadors.

They continue to represent the Vice Chancellor, the University and their campuses and to promote service, volunteerism, Caribbean unity for prosperity and encourage “Pelican Pride” in UWI graduates the world over.

Alumni Ambassadors show that UWI STAT is indeed a LEADERSHIP INCUBATOR as they continue to excel and prove their professional aspirations and leadership potential in varied ways:

  • Rhodes Scholars (9)
  • Chevening and other scholarships
  • National awards such as the Prime Ministers’ Youth Awards 
  • Commonwealth Youth Ambassadors
  • Queen's Young Leaders
  • Political Representatives
  • Leadership positions in all disciplines and professions regionally and globlally

Alumni Ambassadors: - "Committed to Caribbean Self Reliance and Prosperity "

 

We are UWISTAT!

"UWISTAT is not a club, but a community and family of individuals across the region and across the campuses that are bonded together by a common experience that cannot be found anywhere else.

Every time we bear the STAT colours or use the term 'Ambassador' to our name, understand that it is more than just a title; it comes with a responsibility to lead with EXCELLENCE.

When we call ourselves UWISTAT, we automatically align ourselves with a tradition that is strong and respected throughout the region.

Our mission is not to be a hub for idle doers but to build leaders to make a difference nationally and regionally.

So be reminded that whatever we do we do it with EXCELLENCE.
_ Remember that we are here to support and lift each other
_ Remember that we are a select few who have individually chosen to represent the proud traditions of The UWI.
_ Remember that sometimes it is through the difficulties that your leadership potential and style has the greatest opportunity to shine.
_ Remember that leaders aren't intimidated by other leaders but we learn from one another and grow together. We use our influence and position to build others and see them operate at their full capacity.

So I challenge you,  Ambassadors, to dig deep, keep connected and leave the Corps in a better place than you met it each time you interact, to pass on the traditions of Excellence, to keep the family spirit alive, to have fun and enjoy the successes together and to band together when you're tired and frustrated. I can guarantee you that the Corps will improve what you're made of individually and collectively.

We are UWISTAT!"
