An integral part of the University of the Virgin Islands' strength lies in its value system which embodies the

principles, ideals and beliefs of its students, faculty, staff, administrators, and trustees; and forms the foundation for

our actions. The values represent what is important and reveal what UVI strives to become as a University. These ten

values are essential qualities to ensuring the fulfillment of our mission and vision.

Students are our most important stakeholders. We value student-
centered learning and a campus climate that promotes school spirit.
We believe putting students first bolsters enrollment and retention,
and responding effectively to student needs promotes satisfaction and
commitment to the university.

Learning and scholarship for our students, our employees and the
community. We value personal growth and seek to continuously learn as
an organization while being responsive to our changing environment.

Excellence in all we do. We are committed to upholding high academic
standards and providing a nurturing and supportive educational
environment. We continuously seek opportunities for improvement.

Teamwork and accountability are essential to achieving institutional
goals and objectives. We promote the growth and development of
faculty and staff through ongoing training and professional activities.
We advocate high standards of performance for students, faculty and
staff while creating a supportive environment that encourages individual
and group success.

We believe students, faculty and staff are partners with the administration
in decision making on issues that impact the university. We believe
students, faculty and staff stakeholders should be active participants in
any proposed institutional change.

We value mutual respect for everyone, expressed through fairness
and equitable treatment. We embrace multiculturalism and recognize
the unique contributions of all people. We value open communication
and the candid exchange of thoughts and opinions.

We believe optimal results are best achieved by collaborating with
employees to solve problems and reach solutions. We advocate
planning and joint goal-setting to advance the mission and vision of
the university.

As members of the university, we have a shared responsibility
to support our local community which is demonstrated through
enthusiastic, responsible service. We value our university and
encourage the active participation of everyone through cooperation
and communication.

We view technology as a tool to enhance teaching and learning and
to improve the effectiveness of our educational and administrative

We support a performance-based system that recognizes and values
the contributions of all employees. We value equal opportunity and
upward mobility for everyone.
