Join the UWI Alumni Association Chapters and many other graduates as we come together to donate to obtain laptops and internet data service for students. We have a student body of nearly 50,000 and unfortunately approximately 10,000 of them are challenged due to financial and social circumstances and do not have the access needed to participate equitably as we all intensify our digital usage. They need the means to connect to courses! Please join with your fellow Pelicans and donate.

No amount is too small. Simply click here : www.uwi.edu/giving.

I hope you have enjoyed receiving these “Pelican Bytes” from your Alma Mater!

My fellow Pelicans, as we combat COVID-19 together, let us be patient, kind and considerate. Stay safe and positive!
