About the Student Charter

Our Student Charter outlines the shared commitments and responsibilities of UWI Cave Hill students and staff. We are working together to ensure a high quality educational experience so that the Campus can produce graduates who are:
  • Qualified – equipped to successfully pursue employment, whether in industry or academia
  • Well-rounded, global citizens – demonstrating personal and social awareness, and transferable skills
  • University advocates – motivated, as a result of their positive Campus experience, to promote The UWI and commit to its long-term success
Established in 2013, the Student Charter supports the University’s Mission, Vision and Core Values and draws on commitments that are fully defined in Campus and University Policy, procedure and planning documents.
