In 2018, The University of the West Indies (The UWI) family celebrated the double milestones of its 70th anniversary and the 10th year since its Open Campus was established.

Throughout the year, The UWI reflected on its 70 years of service and leadership throughout the Caribbean, but the year has also been one of projection of the next phase for the institution.

On December 19, 2018, join the virtual gathering of UWI staff, students, alumni, partners and friends all over the world for the 70th anniversary year finale.

Themed, Opening The UWI to the World: The Next 70 years, and hosted by The UWI Open Campus, this occasion will feature a look back at the year’s most memorable moments and achievements, messages from partners and a special keynote from Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Hilary Beckles on the next phase for a more globally agile and engaged regional University, digitally-driven with deeper commitment to science and technology innovation and aligned intimately with Caribbean entrepreneurial strategies.
