UVI Welcomes New Dean of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences Division

This spring, the University of the Virgin Islands welcomed Dr. Emily Williams the new dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS).  Dr. Williams comes to UVI after a 13-year career as a tenured professor at Morehouse College where she taught courses in Caribbean Literature, British Literature, Literary Form, Beginning Composition and Advanced Composition. 

During her tenure at Morehouse College, Dr. Williams was a Fulbright Scholar and Lecturer at the University of the West Indies (Mona Campus) in Kingston, Jamaica.  There, she fulfilled her love and passion for West Indian poetry and African American Literature, publishing the book “Anglophone Caribbean Poetry, 1970 – 2001.” 

Dr. Williams said her goal is to establish a firm and solid relationship with students within the CLASS division. “My goal is to let the students know I am there for them.  I would like to have monthly town hall meetings with students and department chairs to hear directly from them and make sure we are connected,” Williams said.
