UVI Joins AgDiscovery Network of Summer Programs

The University of the Virgin Islands has been selected to join the AgDiscovery network of educational institutions that offer a federally funded residential summer program.  This network will introduce middle and high school students to the world of agricultural science. The opportunity was made possible by an agreement between the Cooperative Extension Services (UVICES) and the United States Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA-APHIS) to cooperatively fund the two-week camp.  

“We are looking forward to hosting our first camp at the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix,” said Dr. Louis E. Petersen, the St. Thomas/St. John assistant director of the CES Service. “The program will take place from Aug. 1-13, and we are preparing to host 20 students.” More information is available in a news release on the Media Section of the UVI website – - and from this direct link.
