The term of office of Dr. LaVerne E. Ragster, the fourth president of the University of the Virgin Islands, will expire in 2009. The University of the Virgin Islands Board of Trustees retained Isaacson Miller, a leading national executive search firm, to assist the University in the search for a new president. A search committee, appointed by the UVI Board of Trustees, recruited and screened candidates for the position. More than 70 applications were received.
Next week members of the UVI community will have their first look at candidates who are vying for the University's top job. Two finalists will visit the UVI campuses on St. Thomas and St. Croix to meet with faculty, staff, students, alumni and the general community on January 27, 28 and 29, 2009.
