We act as the campus’ corporate interface with the external community. Our role is to identify and develop funding and income generation opportunities to support the capital and programme development of the Campus. We make it easy for you to achieve your corporate objectives, whether you wish to make a financial gift to UWI, contract University expertise through a consultancy or contract research, or establish a business on campus.

We serve the campus community at Cave Hill by providing a range of services aimed at complementing and supporting the existing income generation activities of Faculties, Departments and Units.

Our focus is also to promote entrepreneurship and stimulate business activity in new areas, academic and non-academic. One of our priorities is to protect and, where appropriate, comercialise the research carried out by University experts.
