”UVI has been the fertile soil that holds the hopes, dreams, and aspirations of Virgin Islands and Caribbean families. Development makes friends and partners for UVI so that those dreams can be made a reality.” - Dr. David Hall

Giving is said to be the highest level of living, and because of this the University strives to make it convenient  for citizens of Virgin Islands to give back to the University to help enhance our economy.
