Graduate Studies and Research


The Research Advisory Committee

The Research Advisory Committee is a mechanism to allow key research stakeholders within and outside of The UWI to meet and review the total research programme of The UWI, with emphasis on its organization, relevance and quality, and to make recommendations to the University’s Finance and General Purposes Committee or Council on issues in need of specific institutional attention. It is proposed that the Committee would meet at least once annually and be chaired by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Graduate Studies and Research. Important UWI stakeholders on the Committee would include the Campus Offices of Research and Innovation, or its equivalent, the Heads of Research Centres and Institutes, Deans, Bursars, Students, inter alia. External Stakeholders on the Committee would include representatives of Governments, Businesses, Industry, NGO’s, inter alia.
