President Gee speaks to new faculty members at the Fall 2014 New Faculty Orientation, hosted by Academic Innovation's Teaching and Learning Commons.
WVU has excellent faculty, 18 of whom have been named Carnegie Foundation Professors of the Year, as they guide and mentor students.
Throughout the academic year faculty development workshops are offered that are informative and assist in the continuing education of our faculty.
WVU has earned the Carnegie Foundation’s Community Engagement Classification. Only 6% of all universities have.
Faculty are awarded over $140 million annually in sponsored contracts and research grants.
There are three annual institutional award programs each year that recognize teaching, research and service-The Benedum Distinguished Scholar Award, the WVU Foundation Award for Outstanding Teaching, and the Heebink Distinguished Service Award.
Faculty success in all dimensions of the mission of this institution, including teaching, research, and service, is essential to the success of West Virginia University. Provost Joyce McConnell shares the calendar, procedures, and more information related to the 2015-2016 annual evaluation process.
