Envisioning the Future of WVU

Throughout 2019, WVU faculty across all campuses engaged in an effort to identify the University’s key strengths and points of differentiation and to collectively imagine future opportunities and possibilities. In total, nearly 1,000 faculty and administrators participated in the Strategic Transformation process through a series of facilitated visioning sessions. The results of those sessions were coded, analyzed and organized into a high-level summary statement of our shared vision and purpose. While it is not a traditional “strategic plan,” it will serve as a blueprint for future growth and a guide to the University’s strategic direction.
