Welcome to
West Virginia State University

Whether you’re a first-time visitor, a prospective student or family member, current student, alumni, faculty member or friend of the University, your interest in State is appreciated and I value any feedback or ideas you would like to share with me or with my senior cabinet members.
At State, we are committed to excellence, accountability and to being student-centered in everything we do. Our students and those who support the valuable state resource that is West Virginia State University deserve no less. I can tell you with confidence that we hold ourselves accountable for every aspect of our service to students and to the citizens of West Virginia. We know we won’t be perfect, but we are committed to excellence through continuous improvement.
All universities say they are student-centered, but it’s harder to live that promise. We are not afraid of lofty goals at State and we are putting initiatives into place through our strategic plan, Vision 2020: State’s Roadmap to the Future, to ensure that we focus on students in every decision, every change and every expenditure we make at this University. Our progress toward these goals will be measured and posted online annually.
Thank you for visiting us online. We welcome your interest and your feedback as we strive to make West Virginia State University the most student-centered, research and teaching, land-grant University in the state of West Virginia, and beyond.
