This Friday, Dec. 11th, 2020, the University of the Virgin Islands will commemorate more than 370 degrees earned by graduates in the Class of 2020. A virtual or online ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. for graduates from the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix and the St. Thomas Campus. Multiple social media sites will carry the event to include, UVI’s official YouTube, Facebook and Twitter pages.

“This year’s commencement ceremony for the University of the Virgin Islands is the most unique, gratifying and innovative experience of any the University has convened in its history,” said UVI President David Hall. “The 2020 graduates were not able to experience the normal pomp and circumstance, family presence and cheering as graduates in the past. Yet, they are as excited and committed to this virtual ceremony as the ones we had face to face.” 

“These graduates have faced and overcome challenges that no other group of students have faced, including hurricanes and a pandemic, and they stand victorious,” said President Hall. “Speakers and honorary degree recipients are all in different locations, yet we all will be embraced by a common spirit of gratitude and celebration.” 

Ultimate Public Servant, Inspirational and Motivational Speaker, and Distinguished UVI Alumnus Hannibal “Mike” Ware will give the keynote address. The University will bestow upon him the honorary degree – Doctor of Humane Letters. Ware holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Accounting from UVI.
