WVU offers opportunities to explore other worlds close to home
For more than 30 years, the WVU Planetarium and Observatory,
located at White Hall on the WVU Downtown Campus, has given
residents in Morgantown and surrounding communities opportunities
to see worlds beyond their own.
WVU acts as community development catalyst
Rich Edwards (in orange), the WVU Smith OEDC outdoor recreation
infrastructure coordinator, directs volunteers along the trail
at West Run Woods in Morgantown. Development of trails and
the state's outdoor economy has become an important part of
the service work at WVU.
WVU serves both as West Virginia's flagship and land-grant institution. We are 1
of only 18 land-grant institutions in an EPSCoR state recognized as R1.
