A Message to the WVU Family

West Virginia is depending on us. Across our state, 1.8 million West Virginians need and deserve the quality teaching, research, and outreach West Virginia University provides. Morgantown is not our campus; the state is our campus.

Together we can leverage the University’s tremendous force, energy, vitality, innovation, and creativity as a catalyst for progress in West Virginia—and beyond. And in doing so, we can position West Virginia University to stand as a leader among land-grant institutions.

I am proud to once again serve as West Virginia University’s president. In the coming months, I will be visiting all 55 counties in West Virginia to learn more about our communities’ needs and how we can work to deliver solutions. I will strive to make our institution and state stronger than ever—and to make certain West Virginians know that West Virginia University is their University.
