Recently, discussion has swirled about West Virginia University’s intentions relating to higher education. Although I made WVU’s intentions clear during a recent meeting of the Blue Ribbon Commission on Four-Year Higher Education, I feel compelled to elaborate.

West Virginia University has no intention of taking over any institution, forcing the consolidation of any institution into our university or forcing other schools to use our university’s administrative services. None of those actions are in the best interest of the state of West Virginia or West Virginia University, and I do not favor any of them.
