Guam - It's not for another month, but today Governor Eddie Calvo signed a proclamation in celebration of the University of Guam Charter Day on March 11. In its 62-year history, the university has graduated over 14,000 students with over 3,600 more enrolled this spring semester.

And before two dozen UOG staff, Governor Calvo signed Bill 190 into public law. The measure would establish a research corporation at UOG in order to promote education, scientific and literary studies by optimizing grants and contracts.

This year's Charter Day theme is "The Road to Greatness-Chalan Para I Ma'gas".
