Message From President Hall

One of the greatest honors in my professional life is serving as the President of the University of the Virgin Islands. We are a University of spectacular beauty, academic excellence and is mission driven. Though others can claim it, there is no other University in the nation that combines location, excellence, innovation and leadership in the way we do at UVI. I implore you to find out more about this special institution. Whether you are a prospective students, donor, alumni, educator, student or curious explorer, we have something to inspire you if walk inside our digital doors or visit one of our campuses.

As the 5th President of UVI, I am leading a process of institutional transformation that includes so many dynamic, dedicated and brilliant faculty staff and students. We are committed to creating a “culture of leadership” where everyone takes responsibility for our direction, alignment and commitment. Through this process we are not only creating an institution prepared to address the educational challenges of this century, but also poised to transform the Virgin Islands and the Caribbean.

Our new strategic plan “Pathways to Greatness,” indicates that we “will graduate students who are academically excellent, globally sensitive, entrepreneurially focused, emotionally and spiritually balanced, and committed to serving the world.” This is a lofty aspiration, but it is one which we are well on our way to achieving. Please join us if you embrace these values and this quest.


David Hall
