UVI Alumni Association Nominated for National Award

The University of the Virgin Islands’ Alumni Association has been nominated for the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) National Alumni Association of the Year Award. UVI earned the nomination as a result of a 223 percent increase in its alumni giving rate in 2012 and the national exposure the University received as a result of this accomplishment. UVI President Dr. David Hall documented the achievement in an article titled “Virgin Islands Miracle,” which was featured in the Huffington Post, the HBCU Digest, the Tom Joyner Foundation website, HBCU Connect and was involved in an Academic Impressions case study. The winner will be announced at the Third Annual HBCU Awards on June 28, on the Jackson State University Campus, in Mississippi. A news release is available from the UVI homepage –
