The 45-minute discussion will take place at the Orville E. Kean Campus on St. Thomas in the LaVerne E. Ragster Administrative and Conference Center at 12:15 p.m. There will be a brief question and answer session.

The event is one of several discussions President Williams will participate in while visiting St. Thomas and St. Croix.
