About Us

Be engaged with your Alma Mater .... and show your PELICAN PRIDE!

ALUMNI Online is the web and social networking site for UWI graduates. It now provides the UWI alumni population with an easy and effective way of keeping in touch with each other, as well as with their Alma Mater. Graduates can “connect” not only in the Caribbean, but also internationally and will be able to network, make new business contacts, advertise their talents and skills and keep in touch with others who share the same interests.
 
Alumni Online (AO) is free to all UWI graduates. They are welcome to browse the site which gives information about such things as the 17 UWI Caribbean countries, the UWI Alumni Association Chapters and events, the Student Alumni Programme, UWI Consulting and even hosts a section for UWI Parents.

Graduates can create their own personal profile page, upload photos, send messages, create blogs and more. Online donations are also possible at www.alumnionline/giving

About The UWI

(Please note that the proper name of the university is The University of the West Indies, inclusive of the “The”, hence The UWI.)

The UWI has been and continues to be a pivotal force in every aspect of Caribbean development; residing at the centre of all efforts to improve the well-being of people across the region.

From a university college of London in Jamaica with 33 medical students in 1948, The UWI is today an internationally respected, global university with near 50,000 students and five campuses: Mona in Jamaica, St. Augustine in Trinidad and Tobago, Cave Hill in Barbados, Five Islands in Antigua and Barbuda and its Open Campus, and 10 global centres in partnership with universities in North America, Latin America, Asia, Africa and Europe.

The UWI offers over 800 certificate, diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate degree options in Culture, Creative and Performing Arts, Food and Agriculture, Engineering, Humanities and Education, Law, Medical Sciences, Science and Technology, Social Sciences, and Sport. As the Caribbean’s leading university, it possesses the largest pool of Caribbean intellect and expertise committed to confronting the critical issues of our region and wider world.

Ranked among the top universities in the world, by the most reputable ranking agency, Times Higher Education, The UWI is the only Caribbean-based university to make the prestigious lists. In 2020, it earned ‘Triple 1st’ rankings—topping the Caribbean; and in the top in the tables for Latin America and the Caribbean, and global Golden Age universities (between 50 and 80 years old).  The UWI is also featured among the top universities on THE’s Impact Rankings for its response to the world’s biggest concerns, outlined in the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including Good Health and Wellbeing; Gender Equality and Climate Action.
