UVI is making a difference! The entire UVI family (board, faculty, students, staff and alumni) is engaged in new initiatives that will support the University in its objectives to facilitate the social and economic development of the Virgin Islands.
New Academic Programs
The University is committed to creating and maintaining a community in which students, faculty and staff can work together in an atmosphere free of all forms of assault, sexual harassment, exploitation, or intimidation. Every member of the UVI community should be aware that such behavior is prohibited by both federal and local law, and by University policy.
UVI CARES (Crisis Awareness Response Evaluation Safety)
The University of the Virgin Islands provides a variety of prevention programming including prevention, awareness, advocacy, risk reduction, bystander, initiatives, campaigns, and others. By offering a variety of programs, UVI strives to create an environment and culture that is safe for all community members and is respectful of all individuals as we work together to respond to and prevent sexual and interpersonal violence.
Members of the UVI community are encouraged to promptly report observance of and/or complaints about sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and unlawful sexual contact to a supervisor or manager, Title IX Coordinator, EEO Officer, Human Resources, or any other UVI administrator.
