It would be hard to find another university as committed to making a difference to its state as West Virginia University is to West Virginia. As our state, nation, and the world transition to a knowledge-based economy, the role of higher education, which is “the original knowledge industry,” will become even more critical.
WVU’s responsibility has never been more important, and our ability to spark innovation and the jobs and opportunities it produces has never been needed as much as it now. Therefore, we are nurturing the desire to innovate, to find solutions, and to make the world a better place—in every classroom, in every laboratory, and in every discipline across our University.
Five areas of strength, where the potential for growth and substantial return on investment makes sense, have been identified for strategic investment.
