This Fall, WVU offers new experiences for the entire community—from a free concert by country music star Brad Paisley to an in-person talk from inspirational activist and Just Mercy author Bryan Stevenson. We are offering new services, at the Center for Learning, Advising and Student Success, in the new Office of Global Affairs, and in our new LGBTQ+ Center. And in mid-September we even opened a beautiful new Agricultural Sciences building on the Evansdale campus.
But what I am most excited about is the new spirit pervading West Virginia University. It is a spirit of generosity, of service, of commitment to helping others that has always been part of who we are—but that seems stronger than ever this year. As those of us who were on campus during the devastating flooding in the southern part of the state can attest, the WVU community is passionately committed to the welfare of the people of this state.
I’m proud to see our newest Mountaineers demonstrating this commitment too. Watch this video to see what I mean, then go to iServe to be a part of something great.
Have a wonderful fall semester!
