Many of our visitors have stories that bear some connection to the University of the West Indies. Some work at one of the four campuses: the founding campus at Mona in Jamaica; the St Augustine Campus in Trinidad & Tobago; the Cave Hill Campus in Barbados; or the Open Campus which has roots that go right back to the start of the University, when it was the Extra-Mural Department – geared to take some of the university’s expertise to the general public, literally ‘outside the walls’.
Recently, we’ve been happy to welcome visitors from the campuses across the Caribbean region – all part of the UWI story that the museum tells.
Then we’ve also had visitors whose connections endure across long distances; some whose memories extend across time to their own undergraduate and working experiences at the university, and others who cross both space and time.
Come and share (y)our story!
