Welcome to The University of the West Indies, Mona Campus!
The purpose of higher education is to challenge the world to strive for a better life for all. As graduate students and researchers, you will be accessing training that will enable you to augment the skills you already have while also equipping you to make the foray into new disciplines. With a graduate degree from The UWI, you will be well prepared to stimulate change to promote sustainable economic and social development. How we spend our time and resources is an indication of our priorities. The UWI has invested much of its resources to provide a high-quality postgraduate educational experience, training the next generation of researchers, leaders, and change-makers. As we look forward to a new Academic Year, we reaffirm that commitment in welcoming a new Director for the Office of Graduate Studies and Research (OGSR), Professor Marcia Roye. I am confident that you will all grow into fully-fledged researchers and leaders in society and industry with her leadership and support.
On behalf of your UWI family, I welcome you to this new and exciting phase of your academic journey and career. The UWI is and will always be your place to shine.
