Guest Post: MEMORABLE CUBA TOUR

Overseas tours are always a special student experience. Our Guest Post recalls a tour to revolutionary Cuba just over a year after Fidel Castro’s forces took power – more than a half-century ago.

SOUND MEMORY: “…UWI is unlocking the potential of the West Indies…”

We have to thank Sean MockYen of the rich & diverse Media Lab at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Archive for pulling out this recollection in sound.
It is an excerpt of a song that was written in 1997 by Dr Knox Hagley, then Director for Community Health & Psychiatry at the UWI Mona Campus in Jamaica, where Dr Hagley had literally come of age decades before – a member of one of the early cohorts of medical students at the then single-campus University College of the West Indies.

TIMELINE IN PROGRESS – What do YOU think are points to remember?

A timeline helps us order the past and make sense of it. We identify the things and people that stood out and made a difference to what we have become. And timelines have been around longer than you might think!

CHANCELLOR’S MEDAL

The Chancellor’s Medal is a rare accolade.
First struck in 1998, the 50th anniversary of the university opening its doors, the June 2017 award to Professor Elsa Leo-Rhynie is the sixth such award; and perhaps the last hurrah of outgoing Chancellor Sir George Alleyne.
