"New knowledge is the most valuable commodity on earth. The more truth we have to work with, the richer we become" 
(Kurt Vonnegut, Breakfast of Champions 1973)

The University of the West Indies is proud of its reputation as a leading research university. Our graduates and scholars have already made a significant impact, not only on our region, but on the world.  Our alumni include leaders of industry, governments and organizations around the world. "Research for Development" is our mantra, in support of the "enduring mission of The University of the West Indies... to propel the economic, social, political and cultural development of West Indian society through teaching, research, innovation, advisory & community services and intellectual leadership" (UWI Strategic Plan 2007-2012).
