GUEST POST: ‘Calling UWI Geographers!’

Recent visitors at the UWI Museum included Cecille Harriott Depass who has been inspired to pull together a memorial to the early development of the University of the West Indies Geography Department. We’re happy to facilitate her call for engagement and participation:

MONUMENT HONOURS UWI GRADUATES WHO LEAD GOVERNMENTS

The University of the West Indies’ founding Mona Campus has created a tradition that reflects one aspect of the UWIs undeniable contribution to Caribbean life and development. In a park near the campus’ Irvine Hall Gate, on a monument whose centrepiece harks back to the early university and to Gibraltar Camp which preceded it, the names of UWI graduates who have become regional leaders of government are inscribed.

GIVING HONOUR

In its fifty years of awarding Honorary Degrees (2016 marks 51), the UWI has honoured 437 Caribbean nationals and international icons whose achievements have impacted the region.
