Building an Entrepreneurial UWI

SPECIAL REPORT Building an Entrepreneurial University

UWI tv In a mere four years of existence, UWI tv has established itself as the multimedia public information and education service of The University of the West Indies and one of the drivers of the Global UWI goal. UWI tv is the go to source for critical analyses of common issues, concerns, and socio-economic priorities in the region and the wider Caribbean diaspora. It is in fact a key tool that underpins and facilitates The UWI’s tradition of service. There is an immense amount of original UWI content in its broadcasting. But, even more than this, partnerships with regional and international agencies such as CARICOM and the UN, allow UWI tv to air

interviews, documentaries, research, ground-breaking work and issues that directly affect the Caribbean and its peoples. All of which amplifies the importance of the UWI tv /Flow agreement signed on October 17, 2019 by The UWI’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Hilary Beckles and Flow Country Manager (Barbados) Jenson Sylvester. The combination of cable television and the internet has given the University access to a global audience. Via Flow channels, UWI tv is now accessible to millions of viewers across the Caribbean and, through the Flow EVO service, subscribers have access to 24/7 content from the regional university.
