Students in the UVI Honors Program begin with excellence, develop leadership, and apply both to action: in and out of the classroom, on campus and off, in the Virgin Islands community and beyond. The UVI Honors Program seeks to produce exceptional scholars and citizens by providing participants with enriched intellectual, leadership and outreach experiences designed to cultivate thoughtful, deliberate, articulate, ethically grounded, globally connected and actively contributing members of society.

As an Honors student at the University of the Virgin Islands, you will shape, sustain and represent the University's Culture of Excellence. The program's goals are to cultivate in Honors students the values, attitudes and behaviors of high performance, leadership, personal accountability and continuous learning.
Through active participation in classroom experiences, special events and activities designed to motivate and inspire you to your best self; mentoring relationships with faculty and distinguished alumni; focused, original research; and involvement in the greater Virgin Islands community, the UVI Honors Program is a platform from which you can launch your future endeavors.
In order to remain in the program and graduate with Honors, student participants must:
Honors students may be granted probationary status for only one semester by the Honors Council if their overall grade point average falls below 3.3.
Participation in the Honors Program and successful completion of its requirements will be included in student transcripts and acknowledged on degrees.
Relationship between Honors Activities and Community Service:
Community involvement is a major component of the Honors Program. It is implemented across all four years of the Program. In the freshman year (through Honors 101 and Honors activities), students are exposed to issues of concern through a "Community as Text" orientation. In the sophomore year (through Honors 201 and Honors activities), students research issues they've learned about, and in the upper division they plan and implement projects and reports/presentations (see Honors 401, 402). The Honors activities throughout the four-year Program stimulate and are integrated with community service.
