UVI Welcomes 50 Doctoral Candidates in the First Ph.D. Cohort

The University of the Virgin Islands welcomed the inaugural cohort for the University’s Ph.D. in Creative Leadership for Innovation and Change. The inaugural cohort, composed of 50 students from the Virgin Islands, the Caribbean and the United States, met on Sunday, Aug. 22, for a welcome reception at the President’s Guest House. Participants will be able to complete many of the program requirements online, but residency dates are required each semester. The Ph.D. cohort will meet this week, from Aug. 22 to Aug. 26, as they officially begin their coursework.

“In the Virgin Islands, we need to create a place where we are nurturing creative leaders,” said UVI President David Hall. “When we think about the future, if we can be a resource for the development of powerful creative leaders, then many of the issues that we face could be addressed.” More information is available in a news release on the Media Section of the UVI website – - and from this direct link.
