Buy a Brick Program
Campaign for UVI
The University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) is at a
pivotal moment in its history, advancing along a path to
greatness. To mark this, UVI is pleased to launch a
permanent, physical Pathway to Greatness with its Buy a
Brick Program. You can help pave the Pathways to
Greatness by purchasing a brick, and by so doing you
will also be contributing to Campaign for UVI, the
fundraising effort that will support the next steps UVI
needs to take to achieve true greatness.
UVI has amassed an impressive track record of
achievements. Its dedication to student success has
produced a Pulitzer Prize winner, a mathematician who
discovered two new prime numbers, Rhodes scholars,
Thurgood Marshall Scholars, scientists, professionals,
entrepreneurs, and heads of state who are leaders in the
region and the world. Its commitment to excellence
propels outstanding teaching and scholarship, high
quality academic programs, and cutting edge research.
Its pledge to advance the broader community spurs
initiatives ranging from its Global Institute for
Leadership and Management Development held each summer,
to its partnership with the National Science Foundation
and local education, government, and business
communities to promote the development of the
Territory’s science and technology resources.
The Buy a Brick Program, as part of the Campaign for
UVI, provides the resources needed to take UVI farther
on its Pathways to Greatness.
The brick program has three sites:
Location A - On the Albert Sheen Campus, St. Croix, east
of the residence hall on the southern side of the
entrance from the Queen Mary Highway to the campus.
Location B - On St. Thomas, on the upper campus to the
south of the School of Nursing.
Location C - Also on St. Thomas, leading up to the
Reichhold Center for the Arts box office.
Funds raised by sale of the bricks at Location C will go
to support the Reichhold Center. Funds from the other
two locations will support UVI’s areas of greatest need.
In either case, funds will be counted toward the goals
of the Campaign for UVI, and will be tax-deductible in
the amount allowed by the IRS.
Location A: Next
to Palm Drive on the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix
