External Relations & Intra/Inter-Institutional Relationships

Louis Whittington
Director (Ag)

The Division of External Relations and Intra/Inter-Institutional Collaboration (ERIIC) was formerly the Tertiary Level Institutions Unit (TLIU).

The office is responsible for the development and implementation of the University's policies in relation to managing and strengthening the University's relations with its sister institutions across the region.

ERIIC also manages the processes related to institutional accreditation, programme articulation, course equivalencies and student transfer arrangements with regard to Associate Degrees, Diplomas and Certificates.

It is also responsible for increasing student access to tertiary education in the Caribbean region, through planning, development and expansion of tertiary institution infrastructure (physical and human), encouraging inter-institutional collaboration among public and private institutions, including affiliation arrangements, franchising and joint programme delivery.

ERIIC will continue to build partnership arrangements between the UWI and other tertiary institutions in the region.
