Beschreibung"UWI Cave Hill: 40 Years--A Celebration is the exciting success story of the youngest campus of the University of the West Indies. From the humblest of beginnings in the abandoned hall of a Caribbean trade fair, on a patch of virgin, reclaimed land at the then new Deep Water Harbour site at Bridgetown, Barbados, it moved to a dramatic escarpment at The Mount, just two miles north of the city--a site chosen from the air by the prime minister, the late Errol Barrow himself, piloting his own small plane! Today, this once spacious site is full and expanding still, "overflowing" as it were, down the hill. Perhaps the richest pages are those of people and events. Cave Hill has been a ferment of ideas, of education, writing, research and publishing; of political protest and intellectual discourse; and of student energies--in drama, dance, debate, dominoes and sports of all kinds. And the final chapter, with new plans, new projects and new buildings, points the way to even more major developments. The text includes summaries of the history of faculties, schools, centres and other units on the campus, with a brief running text and picture captions that illuminate the mission and the magic of the Cave Hill story.
