GG proclaims Jan 7 as UWI Day | Regional university celebrates 75th anniversary this year
Governor General Sir Patrick Allen has declared January 7, 2023 as UWI Day in honour of The University of the West Indies’ 75th anniversary.
The proclamation hailed The UWI for its commitment to the development of the region through the training of its human resources, the conduct of research, the delivery of advisory services to governments and to the private sector, as well as the forging of links with other institutions in the wider region and the rest of the world.
“The University of the West Indies is the leading research institution in the region, and has, since its establishment, produced more than 100,000 graduates in various disciplines, thereby significantly contributing to the region’s human capacity,” the proclamation read in part.
The proclamation was made on Thursday at King’s House in a ceremony attended by Professor Dale Webber, pro vice chancellor and principal of the Mona campus; Dr Maurice Smith, university registrar; Dr Rhonda Jaipaul-O’Garro, university director of marketing and communications; and Allison Fung, executive assistant to the vice chancellor.
