Watch UVI’s 60th Charter Day Celebration The 60th Anniversary Charter Day program for the University of the Virgin Islands (UVI), celebrated on March 31, was enjoyable and enlightening.

UVI celebrated six decades with student presentations, musical tributes, a rousing keynote address by Dr. Robert Franklin; UVI President David Hall made several announcements about the university’s plans to honor the late Dr. Athniel C. “Addie” Ottley. Dr. Yvonne E. L. Thraen was also honored as she transitions to the status of trustee emerita after more than 25 years of service to UVI.

USVI Storm Strong Announces Free 2022 Summer Camp, Call for Camp Participants bs Paid Youth Leaders USVI Storm Strong is a hurricane hazard preparation program that brings together private and public partners to develop long-term, high-impact, community-focused hurricane preparation skills with $500,000 in funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Environmental Literacy Program (ELP).

“Hurricanes Irma and Maria were devastating storms that fundamentally changed our community. But they also gave us a tremendous opportunity to think about how we can be more prepared for future storms,” said project leader Dr. Kristin Wilson Grimes, Ph.D., UVI assistant professor in the Center for Marine and Environmental Studies. The USVI Storm Strong Program engages middle- and high-school youth and their families in workshops designed to increase their abilities to be prepared for a major storm. The program launched in May 2018.
