About West Virginia University
About West Virginia University West Virginia University is a public, land-grant institution founded in 1867 whose mission is to create a diverse and inclusive culture that advances education, healthcare and prosperity for all by providing access and opportunity; by advancing high-impact research; and by leading transformation in West Virginia and the world through local, state and global engagement. Part of the broader WVU System, its flagship campus is located in Morgantown, W.V., a vibrant city consistently named one of the best places to live in the U.S. Home to 26,269 students (nearly 30,000 in the WVU System), the Morgantown campus offers a combined 359 majors at the baccalaureate, master’s and doctoral levels across 14 colleges and schools: agriculture; natural resources and design; arts and sciences; business and economics; creative arts; dentistry; education and human services; engineering and mineral resources; law; media; medicine; nursing; pharmacy; physical activity and sport sciences; and public health. Hundreds of distance education and online classes are also available. The student-faculty ratio is 18-1. WVU Morgantown prides itself on diversity, with stude...nts coming from 110 nations, all 50 U.S. states (plus D.C.) and all 55 West Virginia counties. Educational opportunities are top-notch, with 79% of full-time instructional/tenure-track faculty holding the highest academic degree in their field and 19 having been named Carnegie Foundation Professors of the Year. In March 2014, Dr. E. Gordon Gee was appointed to his second term as president of West Virginia University (the first was 1981-85). A leader in higher education for more than three decades with extensive service on education-governance organizations and commissions, Dr. Gee was named one of the top 10 university presidents in the U.S. by Time magazine as well as the nation’s top university president by Great Value Colleges. In addition to his service at West Virginia University, Dr. Gee has also served as president of The Ohio State University twice, Vanderbilt University, Brown University and the University of Colorado. In the fiscal year ending in 2020, WVU reached a new record of $195 million in research funding. This includes $95 million from the federal government (the top three federal agencies were the National Institutes of Health, Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation), $43 million from industry/other and $39 million from the State. The WVU Foundation also recorded $197.8 million in new gifts and pledges in 2020, bringing its total assets to $1.82 billion. Spanning across 1,892 acres, the Morgantown campus features 245 buildings, 11 of which are on the National Register of Historic Places. Woodburn Hall, completed in 1876, is the centerpiece of the University and one of the oldest and most beautiful buildings on campus, dubbed “the beating heart of WVU.” WVU boasts a vibrant and varied student life, offering more than 500 recognized student organizations as well as a plethora of intramural programs and club sports. Athletically, the Mountaineers compete at the NCAA DI level as members of the Big 12 Conference. One of the most storied athletics programs in the nation, the Mountaineers have amassed 22 national championships in men's and women's sports, almost 100 team conference titles and more than 200 first-team All-Americans, contributing to an enormous sense of pride in the community and across the state. Collectively the WVU System spans 518 buildings across 15,880 acres, and includes the Morgantown flagship campus; WVU Potomac State College in Keyser; WVU Institute of Technology in Beckley; Health Sciences campuses in Charleston and Martinsburg; seven farms and five forests throughout the state; and WVU Jackson’s Mill State 4-H Camp. All are united under the vision of being purposeful in studies and work in order to partner with communities near and far to bring needed and valued solutions to real-life problems within the pillars of education, healthcare and prosperity.
