University Development, which began in the early 1970s, allows UVI's many constituencies to take an active role in building the future of the institution and the Territory. Gifts to the University come in the form of cash, stocks and securities, gifts-in-kind, personal property, and real estate as explained in our newly adopted, Gift Acceptance Policy. Securing much needed external funding is one of the major operational objectives outlined in UVI's Strategic Plan, Pathways to Greatness, the University's ambitious guide for the future.

One of the major benefits of giving to UVI is knowing that you have made a conscious decision to invest in the quality of education offered to UVI students. Contributions ensure the availability of funds for student and faculty research, student aid, technology, summer academies and training, scholarships, the performing arts and many other ongoing and unforeseen needs of this institution.

Naming Policy

The purpose of the University of the Virgin Islands Naming Policy is to provide guidelines for the naming of University properties in recognition of persons or entities making substantial contributions to the cost or maintenance of University properties, and commemorative plaques for gifts of lesser value that are associated with buildings and other physical entities.
