The 4 Guild Presidents of The UWI campuses are all ex-officio UWI STAT Ambassadors. 

Ambassadors are responsible for promoting their campus and the entire institution regionally and internationally. They encourage their student peers to "give back" to their campuses through the regional annual FOOTPRINTS: Students for Development programme and promote involvement in alumni relations, as well as "connectivity" and engagement with the respective campuses / institution via the UWI Alumni Association (UWIAA).

UWI STAT Pledge: As a UWI STAT Ambassador, I pledge allegiance to The University of the West Indies and promise to uphold and defend the integrity and pride of this institution., my country and region through diligence, excellence, commitment and success.

HISTORY: UWI STAT was created and developed by the Director of Alumni Relations in the Office of the Vice Chancellor, Mrs Celia Davidson Francis, in 2005, in association with the Guild of Students of the then three UWI campuses.

The Corps was formed in order to increase regional ties between students and alumni and create student awareness of alumni relations and alumni involvement. The official launch of the programme took place on January 23, 2006.

Like other student organizations, it is registered with the Office of Student Services on all campuses.

The three 2005- 2006 Guild of Students Presidents (Richard Toomer – Mona, Fallon Lutchmansingh - St. Augustine and Floyd Green - Cave Hill) are the founding members. The Open Campus was not yet in existence at that time. Now there is a UWI STAT Ambassadorial Corps for each UWI Campus.
