About the Challenge

In 2019, nearly 1,000 faculty, staff and administrators participated in a Strategic Transformation  process to identify the University’s key strengths and points of differentiation and to collectively imagine future opportunities and possibilities. That  collective vision was shared with the University community in Fall 2019.

Process     Collective Vision

In Spring 2020, the Office of the Provost challenged the WVU community to continue this momentum by offering $1,500 Transform This! Challenge Grants for projects and activities that promote  Strategic Transformation Goal #5: Be a university that advances a culture, climate and organizational structure that promotes sustainability, well-being and an enriched quality of life.
