The University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) Access and Enrollment Services office will host open house sessions on Monday, April 2, on the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix, and on Tuesday, April 3, on the St. Thomas campus. Both sessions will run from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The St. Croix open house will be held in the Great Hall, North West Wing. On St. Thomas, the open house will take place in the first-floor conference room of the Administration and Conference Center.
“In a world that will not stand still for any of us, it’s important for individuals to keep advancing with it,” said Dr. Judith Edwin, UVI’s vice provost for Access and Enrollment Services.
The open houses are especially designed to reach out to those who may have interrupted their education. “Now is the time to drop back in for more choices and opportunities,” Edwin said. “Our diverse range of degree programs will help to develop skills and make individuals more marketable and to advance their careers.”
“We invite individuals to join one of our open house sessions and to interact with education and career experts.” The evening sessions will give participants a chance to learn more about the local and global impact of the latest job trends. “We’ll also introduce UVI’s latest course and degree programs,” Edwin said. “Our programs provide a way to improve existing skills and to learn new ones, and to compete and earn at a higher level. This is important at every stage and in every career path. It is especially critical during challenging economic times.”
