As Assistant Vice President for Decision Support and Analysis, Dr. Chaun Stores provides WVU with cross-functional analytical research to inform institutional effectiveness and planning, policy formation and decision-making in support of the University’s goals and objectives. Reporting to the Vice Provost, he is directly involved in the analysis of student success, institutional benchmarking analyses, and environmental scanning of higher education issues important to the University’s position and operating environment. Stores leads various projects leveraging analytics to establish insight on key topics of interest and importance among senior leadership across WVU campuses.

As a former Southern Regional Education Board Fellow and W.E.B.
