About University of the Virgin Islands

According to Wikipedia, The University of the Virgin Islands is a public historically black land-grant university in the United States Virgin Islands.

The institution also changed its name in 1986 to the University of the Virgin Islands to reflect the growth and diversification of its academic curriculum, research programs, and regional community services. On August 18, 2010, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit decided that the university's regulations prohibiting signs and conduct that could cause emotional distress were unconstitutional.
