Education / News / Virgin Islands / June 12, 2018

A new member had been appointed to the University of the Virgin Islands’ (UVI) Board of Trustees, the institution of higher learning announced Tuesday.

According to UVI, Dr. John A. Quelch, seen above, was appointed by Governor Kenneth Mapp to fill a vacant position on the board. He has been appointed to join its 12-member body and will fill the vacancy left by former Trustee Carol Fulp. His appointment came into effect on April 4, 2018.

“It is our pleasure to welcome Dr. Quelch to the Board of Trustees. Dr. Quelch comes with years of expertise, and the contributions and guidance that he has to offer will be valuable to the future of the University,” said Board Chairman Henry Smock. “His resume is quite extensive and impressive both in regard to academia as well as business.”

Mr. Quelch is currently Dean of the School of Business Administration and Vice Provost for Executive Education at the University of Miami. He has served as professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School from 2013- 2017. He also served as dean, vice president and distinguished professor of International Management at China Europe International School of Business from 2011-2013. Previously, Mr. Quelch was dean (with vice-chancellor status) and professor at London Business School. He has been a Professor of Business Administration at both Harvard Business School and School of Business Administration at University of Western Ontario between 1977 and 1998.

Mr. Quelch holds a Ph.D. in business administration from Harvard Business School, a master’s of science degree and a master’s of business administration from the School of Public Health at Harvard University and Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania respectively; and a bachelor’s degree in modern history from Oxford University.

His involvement in public service spans 9 years, according to UVI. He has also held directorship positions in both corporate, public agency and non-profit organizations from as early as 1987. The new trustee has served on seven international advisory boards between 1991 and 2013. He has held several professional membership statuses and received honors from a few distinguished institutions, UVI said.

UVI is governed by the Board of Trustees, which, under the provisions of Title 17, Chapters 33 and 35 of the Virgin Islands Code. The board serves in a dual capacity, as a body politic and corporate for the purpose of exercising general management and control of the affairs of the University (17, V.I.C. Section 453); and as a body politic and corporate for the purpose of managing and exercising the powers conferred upon the Fund (17 V.I.C. Section 492).

The capacity of the board allows for seventeen voting trustees:

  • Ex-Officio: The Chair of the Board of Education of the Virgin Islands, The Commissioner of Education of the Virgin Islands and the President of the University.
  • Public Members: Nine public members shall serve on the Board who are appointed by the Governor with advice and consent of the Legislature.
