Fellow Pelicans,

At this time of global pandemic, my thoughts are with all UWI graduates across the world who are trying to keep themselves, their families and friends healthy.  

UWI truly has a global footprint – please remember that you can use your UWI Pelican Network to stay connected via this website, our social media (Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram) and the Pelicans Engage App (free at the Google Play Store or the App Store). Feel free to take the time to show your solidarity for SDG 13 and positive Climate Action at http://bit.ly/CCAN-signup

The rapid escalation of the Coronavirus Covid 19 pandemic has prompted The UWI to make very difficult and unprecedented decisions. Students have returned home, teaching has moved online, alternative assessment arrangements are being made and all University events have been cancelled until further notice. I am proud to say that The UWI has established a Covid 19 Task Force which has assembled experts to offer valuable expertise and guide Caribbean governments and institutions, as well as inform our alumni and Diaspora populations in this time of crisis.

Your Alma Mater is working to support each member of the UWI family, our communities and nations through all our remarkable academics, administrative and professional staff who continue to work remotely and our students and our graduates who continue to do contribute their knowledge and professional expertise across the region and world in this “new normal.”  Together we demonstrate the value of universities, and the power of The UWI.

Do stay healthy and safe. Keep your spirits up and your soul calm.

The UWI will continue to be “A light rising from the West” for our Caribbean nations and the world.

Sending you much positivity

Celia Davidson Francis
