faculty and every staff," he said. "We have a tendency to say
'it's their job,' but it's all of our jobs."
UVI Provost Dr. A.I. Musah recalled a time when a se-
curity officer alerted him around 11 p.m. one night that the
windows of his vehicle were down. As students and staff go

body is watching over us. That somebody is our UVI secu-
rity," Dr. Musah said. "We are here today to recognize the
service and the excellence of that service."
