UVI to Delay On-Campus Re-Opening Plan for Fall 2020

The University of the Virgin Islands will delay the implementation of the Fall 2020 on-campus reopening due to concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 Reopening Plan was approved by the UVI Board of Trustees on June 20. The plan had included guidelines for the University to resume in-person instruction, while utilizing a mixed modality approach that would allow for some virtual and in-person instruction. Additionally, on-campus living and work would have commenced with the inclusion of new safety protocols and procedures. 

 “It is with a sense of great disappointment, that I announce that all instruction for Fall be conducted virtually until such time that the local conditions improve,” said UVI President Dr. David Hall. Academic leaders will review those courses that require internships, clinicals and labs and make a determination on how best to facilitate student needs in light of this proposed change.  “This decision to delay is not being made lightly,” said President Hall. “At the heart of our decision is preserving the health and safety of our students, employees, and the public.”
