UVI Receives Major Gift from Diageo for Process Technology Program

The University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) announced yesterday, August 22, the receipt of a $250,000 gift from Captain Morgan’s parent company, Diageo in support of its Process Technology program housed in the College of Science and Mathematics.  As a part of ongoing efforts to enrich and grow the Process Technology program, the funds will be used for scholarships and to support research in the areas of energy and water management.  The research is anticipated to produce valuable information and potentially actionable ideas for the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Caribbean region, especially when major disasters strike.  

UVI President Dr. David Hall said: “This support from Diageo is not a one-off; it represents the latest in a series of investments by Diageo in our Process Technology program. It also symbolizes the type of partnerships with industry that UVI needs to reach our full potential.”
