Vision 2015: West Virginia University Institute of Technology
(A narrative description of WVU Tech in the year 2015)
West Virginia University Institute of Technology, the premier university of the region, is recognized nationally for its excellent, cutting-edge academic programs. WVU Tech is a leading STEM institution (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and a designated U.S. News and World Report Top 100 Best Engineering College. Degree programs in engineering, technology, health care, business, humanities, and the social sciences are thriving, and several new interdisciplinary degree programs have been launched to prepare Tech students for emerging worlds of work.
Campus life is vibrant. With larger numbers of female, international, and out-of-state students enrolled in academic programs, the student population is richly diverse. New student organizations have been formed and existing ones revitalized to afford students a more enriching student life experience. Student success programs continue to assure students the individualized educational support essential to classroom success. Renewed by enhanced facilities, WVU Tech athletics is enjoying record success. New programs for special audiences keep classrooms, residence halls, and activity centers busy during the summer months.
Through adoption of data-driven and transparent governance, WVU Tech has a solid foothold on its future. Enrollments have grown steadily, and academic programs are financially self-sufficient. Members of the Alumni Association have contributed generously to their alma mater, and as a result endowment funds in the WVU Tech Foundation have increased substantially. The campus is being transformed through implementation of the master plan, as demonstrated by several new construction projects, attention to renovation and maintenance needs, and a campus-wide beautification effort.
