Rethinking Academics at WVU

In December 2020, President Gordon Gee issued a charge to the campus community to transform our University to ensure its relevance and prominence now and in the future. As part of that effort, the Office of the Provost is leading a process to rethink and transform the University’s academic programs and student support services.

While we know that Mountaineers are resilient, University leaders have created resources and processes to provide support during this unprecedented situation.
