Sheen Campus on St. Croix, the University of the Virgin Islands Board of Trustees approved the Fiscal Year 2020 Budget of $47.1 million. The Board also set the Fiscal Year 2020 fundraising goal at $3 million and the Alumni Giving rate at 20 percent.

UVI Board of Trustees Chairman Henry Smock welcomed three new members of the Board of Trustees. Trustee Nisha Clavier will serve as the Alumni Representative; Trustee Dr. Adam Parr will serve as the Faculty Representative and Trustee Raven Phillips will serve as the Student Representative.

UVI President David Hall updated the Board on the University’s initiatives and achievements during the President’s Report.

Twenty-one UVI students participated in research this summer at institutions or companies across the nation, Dr. Hall said, explaining that through programs like these students can go away and stay at home. “It is an outstanding opportunity for our students especially those in science and math to get their foundation here – use their summers working in labs doing research with cutting-edge faculty members in some very outstanding environments.”  Some of the places students traveled to conduct research included, Yale University, Boston University School of Medicine, the University of Tennessee, University of Minnesota, the Center for Aquatic Chemistry and Environment, Texas A &M University and Norfolk State University.
