President’s Corner

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF THE VIRGIN ISLANDS

I am so excited about the resumption of the publication of the UVI Magazine. The University has so many inspiring, relevant and consequential stories to tell and this magazine will allow us to better tell our story.A magazine is more than just a collection of articles, it is a glimpse into the heart and soul of an institution. Our heart, soul and wisdom are worthy of the public’s exploration,because each day we are collectively attempting to do something great for our students and the Territory. This first edition of the new UVI Magazine focuses on innovation, which is the focus of the University’s new strategic plan, “Greatness Through Innovation.” The articles attempt to capture that spirit of innovation that is alive and well. Yet we realize that it must permeate everything we do. Therefore,this issue is not just a record of our existing innovative programs and plans but a reminder that this is our new destiny.I hope you enjoy the publication and that it inspires you to join us on this innovative journey. Sincerely,David HallPresidentof the University of the Virgin Islands
