Dean's Message

Dr. Akshai Mansingh

It gives me great pleasure that our University's Faculty of Sport is a reality.

The launching of the Faculty of Sport is an exciting time for The University of the West Indies as it recognizes sport to be one of the strongest assets of the region. This is The UWI’s way of ensuring that the legacy remains. I am honoured to be charged with the task of making this happen across all four campuses.

The Faculty will not only aim to maintain the excellence of those who play sport but also those who play at sport. We aim to offer athletes the tools for achieving their full sporting potential by utilizing modern methods of training the body and mind. But we equally wish to offer opportunities to those involved in research around sport, which is a vital part of building not just an athlete, but also the Faculty.

Harnessing the expertise in all our campuses will allow us to reach all students and athletes in the region interested in sport, and is a commitment to the One UWI path.
