Value for money

Demonstrating efficient and effective use of our human, physical, technological, information and financial resources – Are we efficient at using our resources?


Transformative development of students and staff

Contributing to the enhancement of the knowledge, skills and attitudes of staff and students – Has The UWI contributed to marked, positive change in staff and students


Adherence to high standards

Consistently meeting agreed service standards and/or applying best practice in our delivery of academic, professional, technical or support services and in our communication with internal and external stakeholders – Do we try to do it right the first time, every time?
