Transformative. Inclusive. Nation-building.
For almost 45 years, the University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI) has been transforming the lives of Cayman's residents as the nation's premier provider of tertiary education. Established as a Community College in 1975, UCCI has grown from being a part-time establishment to a full-fledged tertiary level institution offering a plethora of programmes in the Associate, Bachelor and Master's levels as well as Professional Education and Workforce Training. Today, UCCI is a thriving intellectual community of 1200 students and 70 full-time faculty and staff members representing 30 nationalities and a kaleidoscope of expertise.
UCCI has become the institution of choice for Cayman's students, as they are able to experience the demands of a University environment right on their doorstep. Students receive an education that seeks to build social and cultural capital, advance subject matter expertise, cognitive development, and nurtures a sense of agency and civic responsibility providing school leavers and adults with a lifetime of personal and professional successes.
To achieve its purpose as a cornerstone for prosperity in the Cayman Islands, UCCI has outlined a robust 5-year Strategic Plan that focuses on the vision for a suitably resourced, student-centred institution that serves as an engine for economic development, innovation and social change.
