Guest Speaker from the White House

From March 23 to 27, the University of the Virgin Islands celebrates 'UVI Pride Week' throughout the Territory. During March, our charter month, we reflect on the impact UVI has had on our alumni and the Territory.

We Are Proud of UVI because...

  • UVI Alumnus Osbert Potter (‘78) is the lieutenant governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands…
  • UVI contributed $83.5M to the Virgin Islands economy in one year… 
  • UVI has been nationally accredited since 1971. Additionally, our Schools of Business, Education and Nursing are also nationally accredited… 
  • We have received the status of “candidate school” for accreditation of the School of Medicine by the Liaison Committee for Medical Education... 
  • We have over 8,000 alumni who hold leadership roles in the territory, the region and the world... 
  • Miss UVI Elisa Thomas is the Miss National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame Queen…

Show Your UVI Pride!
