The UWI Museum welcomes 2015. We look forward to continuing with our mandate to share the history and development of the University of the West Indies and its multi-faceted relationship to the Caribbean region it serves.
2015 is the 50th anniversary of the first graduating class of the University of the West Indies. In 1962, the UWI superceded the University College of the West Indies (UCWI), previously associated with the University of London; gaining full degree-granting status.
2015 is also the centenary year of Sir Arthur Lewis, nobel laureate in economics, who was the UCWI’s first West Indian Principal and subsequently the first Vice-Chancellor of the UWI.
We will be celebrating these and other milestones and events on the ground and via social media. Stay in touch with us! We wish you well for the new year.
