UWITV is the multimedia public information and education service of The University of the West Indies (UWI). The primary objective of UWITV is to present critical analyses of the common issues, concerns and socio-economic priorities in our region and the wider Caribbean diaspora.
UWITV is central to The UWI’s mission to advance learning, create knowledge and foster innovations for the positive transformation of the Caribbean and the wider world. Its global reach via cable television and the internet makes it a powerful tool for disseminating knowledge, stimulating critical thinking, promoting activism and nurturing leaders in every sphere of Caribbean life.
UWITV’s content is aired on our 24 hour channel on the FLOW EVO Cable Television platform. This enables us to deliver uniquely diverse UWI and Caribbean-focused programming to millions of viewers in the Caribbean.
UWITV’s cable service is complemented by a robust web and social media presence, allowing access to content in real time or on demand. The UWITV online www.uwitv.org provides access to programmes broadcast on the cable TV networks as well as searchable database containing thousands of archived UWI content covering a wide spectrum of topics and subjects.
These multi-dimensional and modern media platforms underscore the impactful contribution being made by UWI through its strategically advantageous collaborations with national, regional and international partners.
Through this multimedia service, the UWI continues to enhance its on-going mission to inform, educate, inspire and express the rich cultural and intellectual diversity of Caribbean civilisation.
We generate and distribute video programmes that epitomises the extensive learning, teaching and indigenous and innovative research occurring among the students and faculties at the five campuses of the UWI. These programmes are also designed to embellish the minds of a diverse audience to unlock worlds and engender new perspectives for Caribbean people across the region and the world.
In so doing, UWITV has taken the university beyond the boundaries of its landed campuses into homes, offices and schools across the world. It expands UWI’s contributions to strengthening democracy and development and to promoting deeper Caribbean regional integration and cooperation.
