UWI CELEBRATING 70 YEARS (2018)

During the 1840s and about a decade after the University (College) of London was created, British abolitionists suggested to the UK government that a similar institution be set up in the West Indies. It was not long after the so-called full emancipation of Caribbean Africans.  Nothing happened until 1948, the year MV Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury with a thousand passengers from the Caribbean.

The University of the West Indies has graduated from a fledgling college in Jamaica with 33 students to a full-fledged, regional University with near 50,000 students. Today, The UWI is the largest, most longstanding higher education provider in the Commonwealth Caribbean, with four campuses: Mona in Jamaica, St. Augustine in Trinidad and Tobago, Cave Hill in Barbados, and an Open Campus serving 17 Caribbean countries.

As a global university rooted in the Caribbean, The UWI has established centres with leading higher education partners in Asia, Africa, and North America such as the UWI-China Institute of Information Technology, the University of Lagos (UNILAG)-UWI Institute of African and Diaspora Studies, and the State University of New York (SUNY)-UWI Center for Leadership and Sustainable Development. The UWI has been and continues to be a pivotal force in every aspect of Caribbean development; residing at the centre of all efforts to improve the well-being of people across the region.

This year, UWI also broke into the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings  for the first time. It is the only Caribbean institution on the world-wide list, placing it in an elite band of the top 5 of universities worldwide, based on data showing that there are over 25,000 recognised universities globally. The UWI was also the only Caribbean university ranked earlier this year in THE's 2018 Latin America University Rankings. This exceptional performance demonstrates a series of deliberate strategic initiatives advanced by the implementation of the University's five-year strategic plan for 2017-2022. As the regional institution commemorates its 70th anniversary milestone, it celebrates its students, faculty, administrators, alumni, governments, and partners in the public and private sector.

UWI WINDRUSH FUND
I was among the guests last night as Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Hilary Beckles hosted the penultimate event of the celebratory UWI year at Goodenough College, London. This is particularly significant as UWI started life as a college of the University of London with Her Royal Highness Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone as its first Chancellor. Today, The UWI is the premier higher education provider in the English-speaking Caribbean, and an icon of Caribbean integration and cultural identity. The University's role in Caribbean development and the improvement of the well-being of Caribbean people cannot be overstated.

The reception, held in association with The Commonwealth Secretariat and the University of London, brought together UWI's UK-based alumni, supporters, and those with a particular interest in the educational development of the Caribbean diaspora in the UK.

Notably, the UK's Windrush generation and The UWI share a 70th anniversary milestone this year; both of which represent paths out of poverty for Caribbean peoples. Indeed, it is the intertwined destiny of the UK and the Caribbean that gave birth to The British Foundation for The University of the West Indies (BFUWI) a decade ago. The foundation supports the promotion and development of progressive and constructive relationships between the diverse cultures of the British and Caribbean peoples. In the past 10 years, it has facilitated a range of initiatives and activities to bring both communities closer together, and to link the academic work of The UWI to the needs of the diaspora community in the UK. As the University's charitable arm in the UK, the BFUWI has also engaged in scholarship fund-raising for UWI students. This special education fund, the Windrush Fund, is envisioned as the launch-pad which can bolster the University's work and mission.

Arthur
