WLU has formed a partnership with Southern Research Institute, an independent, not-for-profit, private corporation that serves Government agencies as well as the pharmaceutical, biotechnological and chemical industries. This organization has committed to participate in whatever capacity meets the needs of our MS in Biology program, which includes serving as a program advisor, graduate mentor, and member of graduate committees. Additionally, Southern Research has agreed to host graduate student interns working on research projects.
WLU and the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine (WVSOM) signed a Memorandum of Understanding to facilitate a bridge program designed for students seeking to become physicians. The program, which is the only guaranteed bridge program to medical school in the Mountain State, assures admission to WVSOM upon successful completion.
