By any measure, West Virginia University is a serious research institution. R&D Magazine named WVU technology as the winner of an Oscar of Innovation. The Scientist magazine identified WVU as the second-best place to do research out of all public universities.

With significant increases in funding from organizations such as the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Department of Energy—and private philanthropists—WVU is poised for a new era of impact and excellence.

A State of Minds: The Campaign for West Virginia’s University is the vehicle through which we can compete for, attract, and retain nationally recognized scholars and experts to our faculty. Private support provides labs, grad students, professional development opportunities, and more—all of which allow us to continue to take on world-shaping research initiatives. With private support, we can position WVU—and West Virginia—for a brighter future.
