"The UWI has indeed committed itself to taking quality to the next level where every member of staff perceives the critical importance of her or his role in the institution’s quality culture. These are all extremely positive and promising developments for The UWI’s quality culture, the preservation of the institution's reputation for academic excellence and continuous improvement of service quality."
Senior Programme Officer
Quality Assurance Unit
"It is commendable that The UWI is becoming more sensitive towards its stakeholders' needs and expectations, through ensuring that all its processes are evaluated and monitored. As far as human resources are concerned, the Quality Policy should serve as a reference for staff in articulating their purpose and in helping them to understand how the quality of their individual contribution affects the overall output and, therefore, its importance to the success of The UWI."
Assistant Registrar (Staff)
Office of Administration
"Having a coherent quality assurance plan allows people outside The UWI to know the value of the degree being offered. Consequently, students can now be reassured that they are graduating with a degree that has value internationally in this globalised age. In essence, whilst having a tertiary education is crucial, the quality of that degree is equally essential. The UWI Quality Policy ensures that the degrees offered are worthwhile and world class."

"The quality tenets serve to deepen the quality ethos aimed at transforming UWI's administrative culture and processes and thereby complement the established quality assurance system for a holistic quality environment as envisioned by its stakeholders."
Senior Programme Officer
Office of the Board for Undergraduate Studies
"I consider the implementation of a UWI Quality Policy a significant step which will assist UWI Alumni Relations professionals as they seek to increase alumni engagement across the regional institution. Research shows that student experience directly impacts alumni loyalty. The ENTIRE student experience (academic learning/administrative interaction and co-curricular activities) cultivates a graduate, therefore all members of The UWI community impact both Quality and Alumni Relations."
Director of Alumni Relations
Director and Coordinator of the Vice-Chancellor's UWI STAT Ambassadorial Corps
"What The UWI Quality Policy means for me as a student is commitment to ensuring that the highest quality of education is provided …and a consistently applied system of evaluation in maintaining the highest accreditation standards and frequent communication among stakeholders."

"It is my firm belief that we can significantly improve the quality service to members of the community of Persons With Disabilities (PWDs). We must always remember that disability respects no one. You can be able-bodied today and disabled tomorrow. So we must always plan and implement quality programmes and policies that are inclusive of these vulnerable individuals."
