"Our regional character will be the basis for our international engagement. The UWI is unique in the global setting (its regional reach, its areas of focus, its history, its dominant role in Caribbean society)... We understand and have embraced this uniqueness and it is on this basis that we will engage the rest of the world to collaborate and compete."
