Posed on display at The UWI Museum are the original matriculation, graduate and graduation gowns worn and donated by former students dating from 1949 when UWI was UCWI, to the current gown worn by students graduating in 2016. It brings to life the vision each student has when embarking on a degree of higher education; graduation day.
