The West Virginia University Institute of Technology (WVU Tech) Revitalization Committee will hold two Subcommittee meetings and a full Committee meeting in the coming weeks. The meetings are part of the on-going effort to provide guidance and support in strengthening the institution’s mission by creating new opportunities to “recruit, retain, and rebuild,” a major focus of Carolyn Long, WVU Tech’s Campus Executive Officer (CEO). The Revitalization Committee was formed in early 2012 to review and implement the WVU Tech Revitalization Study mandated by Senate Bill 486 (2011). The subsequent report, which was presented to the Legislature in October 2011, provided a series of recommendations to improve the Montgomery campus.
The WVU Tech Dean of the Leonard C. Nelson College of Engineering and Sciences Search Committee has invited four candidates to campus for interviews. The final candidates include: Dr. Steven D. Leftwich, Dr. Zeljko “Z” Torbica, Dr. Christopher W. Pong, and Dr. Seshadri Mohan.
West Virginia University Institute of Technology is proud to announce that former president and professor emeritus Dr. Leonard C. Nelson will be the 2012 Commencement Speaker at the May 5 ceremony. Nelson was the University’s longest-standing president, serving the institution for 25 years. Among his many accomplishments, he is the namesake of the WVU Tech College of Engineering and Sciences.
The Leonard C. Nelson College of Engineering & Sciences at West Virginia University Institute of Technology (WVU Tech) recently received a $20,000 donation from CONSOL Energy. The gift will be used to support student projects and research.
