As our mission states: “West Liberty University, established in 1837, was the first institution of higher education in West Virginia. Today, we are a dynamic, inclusive, student-centered community that cultivates scholarly exploration, experiential learning, creative expression, and global citizenship.
WLU is a public university committed to providing students with a comprehensive education from undergraduate to advanced degrees while serving as the region’s leading advocate for the arts, education, research, and economic opportunity.”
I have just started as President of West Liberty, but I have found numerous examples of how the institution lives its core values:
The faculty and staff truly care about and respect our students.
We offer an inclusive and innovative education.
Students engage in experiential learning, research, and artistic expression.
If you are a prospective student, I invite you to take a virtual tour of campus and plan your visit to the Hilltop.
If you’re an alum, I look forward to meeting you at Homecoming, an athletic or arts event, or a local reunion.
If you are a community member, don’t hesitate to contact me if you’d like to discuss ways that West Liberty University can make a broader impact in the Ohio Valley.

President, West Liberty University
