UVI to Launch $25M ‘Campaign for UVI’

This Fall, the University of the Virgin Islands will launch the public phase of “Campaign for UVI,” the first comprehensive fundraising campaign that the University has ever undertaken. Through this $25 million campaign, the University will raise funds in three areas: Promote Excellence in Teaching; Facilities and Infrastructure and Campus Programs.  The campaign’s theme is “Creating Legacy.”

The Campaign for UVI will launch at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 29, at the Reichhold Center for the Arts on St. Thomas, during the Business After Hours Season Launch Party. The campaign will kick-off on St. Croix at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 13, at a reception on the Albert A. Sheen Campus.   The silent phase of the campaign was launched in 2010 and to date has raised $17.5 million. 

“I am determined to see the University of the Virgin Islands become the best and most effective institution of higher education it can possibly be,” said UVI President David Hall. “Our purpose is to become a major center for academic excellence, and even more vital force for economic growth, and a catalyst for improving the quality of life for residents across the Territory.”
