Modified Schedule on UVI Commencement Days

The ceremonies will take place at 1:30p.m. on the Albert A. Sheen Campus tomorrow, Wednesday – May 13th  on the campus grounds and on the St. Thomas Campus on Thursday, May 14th at the Sports & Fitness Center.  On behalf of the entire University community, I would like to extend a heartfelt congratulations to the Class of 2015! We are so proud of your accomplishments and look forward to joining your family and friends in celebration of your success.

In an effort to ensure that our collective resources are supporting commencement, we encourage offices that can do so to observe a closing schedule of 12pm only on Wednesday, May 13th on St. Croix and 12pm on Thursday, May 14th only on St. Thomas.  This would assist with easing some of the anticipated traffic and congestion on commencement days. It would also provide an opportunity for employees to thoughtfully participate and support the commencement ceremonies.

It is important to note that this modified schedule is not applicable to all areas and employees.  There are some critical areas and many individuals who are tasked with providing key support, serving on committees and volunteering to ensure that our ceremonies are a success.  You are expected to continue to serve in this capacity and provide the necessary and critical support for commencement. Your generosity of time and spirit are deeply appreciated. If there are any questions or concerns, please follow-up directly with your supervisor regarding instructions for your particular area.
