UVI Launches UVI Rise Blog; UVI Community Invited to Submit Stories to be Published

Hurricanes Irma and Maria dealt a blow to the Virgin Islands and UVI community therein. The University remains committed to rising above these dual tragedies. Its students, faculty, and staff have dug in to do the work that must be done to recover.

The University has created “The UVI Rise Blog,” which will bear witness to our journey as we make our way towards full recovery. It is our hope that this blog will bring our community closer together as we make our way back to normalcy. See this link to the first of many stories in the blog: Weathering the Storms; Life Lessons Taught by Hurricane Irma. Resident Assistants, who sheltered on campus, share their experiences.

The UVI community is invited to submit stories or story ideas to the blog. Please use this link to our easy to use eform:  UVI Rise Blog Submittal eform. For more information contact the Public Relations Office at (340) 693-1057 or email
