Welcome to The University of the West Indies Alumni Association Florida Chapter (UWIAAFL), an alumni association that is dedicated to the advancement of The University of the West Indies (UWI) as a center for excellence and the building of communities in Florida and the Caribbean.

All UWI graduates who reside in Florida, (from the Cave Hill, Mona, Open and St. Augustine campuses) - we invite you to join and become involved!


Dear UWI Alumni and Friends of UWI,         


 As the University of the West Indies (UWI) nears its 70th anniversary in 2018 it is reaching out to its alumni and their networks, faculty and staff as well as regional and international corporations and businesses to support the Global Giving Week, August 1-7. By becoming donors, the individual and collective impact will support Research, Innovation, entrepreneurship and the education and preparation of a new generation of global leaders. The UWI serves 17 English-speaking Caribbean countries and Caribbean nationals. The overall Global Giving Program under the theme of Emancipation, Education and Donation, aims to create a culture of sustained philanthropy to UWI across the region/world. The program is supported by the UWI Alumni Associations worldwide. 

I am making a personal appeal to members and friends of UWIAA FL  to fully support the Global Giving Program! It was an honor and privilege to represent UWIAA FL at the Jamaica Diaspora Conference of which many of the speakers were distinguished alumni. While there I visited the Mona campus and was filled with pride at the progress and the many ways that UWI is keeping up the tradition of excellence. The Faculty of Sport was launched on July 26th. Photographs of two of many distinguished speakers, former Prime Minister, the Honourable P.J Patterson and Professor Sir Hilary Beckles,Vice-Chancellor are attached. See also a photograph of the beautiful park honoring the many UWI alumni who have become heads of states. Please give generously and when you are in Jamaica or one of the other campus islands, take time to visit. You will be glad that you did!

Let's show our Pelican Pride and give generously! The names of all donors will be listed on the UWIAA FL site at the following link:

Donations may be made online 24/7 at Please indicate that the donation is on behalf of the Florida chapter and send me an email when you have made your contribution. Checks may be sent to UWI Alumni Association Florida Chapter (UWIAAFL), PO Box 970313, coconut Creek, Florida 33097. Please make check payable to UWI Alumni Association FL with Giving week in the “memo section.” UWIAAFL is a 501 (C) (3) organization.
