UVI Class of 2020 Overcomes Overwhelming Odds - UVI Confers Over 300 Degrees

On May 12, the University of the Virgin Islands Office of the Registrar certified over 300 degrees for the Class of 2020. As a result of the Coronavirus, commencement ceremonies originally slated for May 2020 have been postponed. UVI’s Class of 2020 will walk across the stage and celebrate their Commencement in December 2020.  Currently, students who have earned their degrees will receive their diplomas in the mail. 

“The Class of 2020 is the most unique and resilient class to ever graduate from UVI,” said UVI President David Hall. “They have obtained their academic dreams despite having to endure two category five hurricanes, a pandemic, and numerous personal and financial challenges.”

Dr. Hall continued, “They have endured forces which would have stopped others from achieving their dreams. I am extremely proud of each graduate and appreciate how they made UVI a better place in the process.”

Among the graduating class will be three students of the first cohort of students enrolled in the University’s online program. Another eight students of the Creative Leadership for Innovation and Change (CLIC) doctoral program will receive their degrees as well.
