The following specialised offices report directly to the Principal:

  • The Business Development Office (BDO)
    The BDO acts as the campus’ corporate interface with the external community. It has been established specifically to build partnerships with Government, the corporate and donor community, and UWI alumni.
  • The Campus Quality Assurance Office
    The Campus Quality Assurance Office (CQAO) has responsibility for the continuous monitoring and enhancement of the quality of the student experience at Cave Hill, based on the UWI Cave Hill Campus Student Charter. The CQAO conducts routine and ad hoc research related to students’ academic programmes (including course evaluations) and all aspects of their out-of-classroom Campus experience. Taking student feedback into account, the CQAO makes recommendations for enhancements to Campus policies, processes and services and provides support for implementation of improvement initiatives.
  • The Office of Recruitment and Marketing
    The key responsibilities of the Office of Recruitment and Marketing are two-fold. The Office is primarily responsible for the creation and implementation of data driven marketing campaigns designed to promote the UWI Cave Hill Campus through direct engagement and an array of social, print and visual media strategies. This function is intertwined with the office’s second key mandate to increase student enrolment, through the use of strategic recruitment strategies. The office also serves as a central referral location for regional students seeking advice and assistance during their tenure as students of the Cave Hill Campus.
