Giving to UWI

Our University is poised to transform itself into one that will truly be competitive with some of the best of its kind in the world today. Achievement of that goal will require resources to attract first-rate faculty and students who will ensure that the education we provide and the environment in which students learn will be extraordinary, that our research meets global standards and benefits Caribbean development and that our facilities are modern and comparable to some of the best learning centres anywhere.

Making a donation to UWI will bring us closer to our goal of being the best institution in the world for our region! General options to which you can make donations include University or Campus Endowment Funds, scholarships, academic chairs (as us for areas in which these are being solicited or name your own) and new facilities.

Proceeds from all our Anniversary initiatives will be channeled into a special UWI Regional Endowment fund. This fund, which will be launched in 2008, will facilitate infrastructural projects such as:

  • A Commuting Students’ facility for students at Mona
  • A new Hall of Residence to accommodate 800-1000 students at St. Augustine
  • An Inter-faith Chapel at Cave Hill
  • A Cultural Studies Institute for the UWI-12 states
  • A Commuting/Part-time Students’ facility with Day care services at Cave Hill
  • A Sports Complex at Mona
  • A Reading Diagnostic Literacy Project in the UWI-12
