“It’s really our showcase day. It’s the day that we get to celebrate everything that is great about the University of Guam. I think it’s worth noting that our Charter is unique among all American public universities in that we are tasked by our sponsoring government to serve all the people of Micronesia,” Krise said.

Lt. Gov. Tenorio added: “The research and innovation that’s going on up there … we have a partnership that is developing in the area of agriculture and aquaculture.”

This year marks the 52nd anniversary of the University of Guam’s Charter and the 68th anniversary of the founding of the University of Guam.
