The University of the Virgin Islands is dedicated to providing and facilitating educational opportunities to our students enrolled at the University and to the larger Virgin Islands community. With the upcoming elections in November 2014, we find it necessary to create a forum during which candidates and the constituencies they serve can come together to hear, learn, and understand from each other. To that end, UVI’s Institute for Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness (UVI-ILOE) joins, internally, with the Office of Student Affairs and the Student Government Association and, externally, with the USVI Alliance, to deliver a series of candidate forums on the islands of St. Croix and St. Thomas. These forums will feature the Senatorial candidates on October 8th and 9th, the At Large and Congressional candidates on October 15th and 16th, and the Lt. Governor and Governor candidates on October 22nd and 23rd.
UVI’s Institute for Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness (ILOE) is one of the University’s key initiatives designed to help build strong and diverse leaders capable of responding to the growing leadership needs of the University, the Virgin Islands community, the Caribbean region, and the world. At ILOE, we prepare and inspire administrators, faculty, staff and students to assume leadership roles and become effective global leaders. We are uniquely positioned to create an environment where public and private organizations can become more effective and efficient in leadership and management through consultancies, organizational effectiveness research and development activities. We are dedicated to supporting cutting edge research, exchange of knowledge, experiential learning, and development of leadership worldwide through an integrated set of educational offerings including seminars, workshops, conferences, modules, and consultancies.
Our leadership programs and services are designed to build a sense of enthusiasm and belonging. The Institute provides opportunities for leaders from all walks to learn about the complex factors involved in decision-making; to think strategically about the critical issues facing organizations today; and to gain insight into their individual leadership strengths and abilities. We also provide the necessary tools to help individuals hone their leadership skills and support individuals, organizations, and communities in making a positive difference in their community. We invite you to explore our website and learn more about the opportunities we offer and to join us on the pathway to leadership and organizational effectiveness.
