Academies of Sport

The Faculty of Sport reaches across all the Campuses of the University of the West Indies, through Academies of Sport established on the Cave Hill, Mona, Open and St. Augustine campuses. These Academies (previously known as Departments) are responsible for academic activities, sports at all levels, as well as outreach to communities through Sports.

Dean's Message

Dr. Akshai Mansingh

It gives me great pleasure that our University's Faculty of Sport is a reality.

The launching of the Faculty of Sport is an exciting time for The University of the West Indies as it recognizes sport to be one of the strongest assets of the region. This is The UWI’s way of ensuring that the legacy remains. I am honoured to be charged with the task of making this happen across all four campuses.
