UWI St Augustine principal recounts “successes” of past 60 years


    In its 60 years of existence, the UWI St Augustine Campus has seen remarkable successes, according to Principal Professor Brian Copeland.

    On Monday 12th October, 2020, the campus marked the anniversary with Founders Day.

    Professor Copeland says among the successes for UWI St Augustine are developing new technologies, cutting-edge research, fighting for the rights of Caribbean people, fighting COVID-19, advocating and informing climate change policy and winning Paralympics medals.

    The St. Augustine Campus was the second campus of what would become The University of the West Indies, following the Mona Campus in 1948.

    Today, there are five campuses, including Cave Hill, Five Islands and the Open Campus.
