WVU provost discusses academic plans for fall return
West Virginia University Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Maryanne Reed outlined plans for the academic calendar, and course adjustments to maintain the health and safety of the campus community in a letter Monday, June 8.
Dear West Virginia University Campus Community:
Last week we announced the re-opening of our West Virginia University campuses for the upcoming 2020-2021 academic year. As you prepare your own return to campus, I imagine you’re feeling a mix of emotions — excitement, perhaps a little anxiety, as well as a need for clarity about what the campus experience will be like this fall. I believe you will find answers to most of your questions as we roll out detailed information over the next several weeks.
As Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, I serve as the University’s chief academic officer, overseeing academic policies, faculty development and culture, academic facilities and budget, and global engagement and community outreach. But above all, my office is responsible for working with faculty to provide a high-quality and relevant academic experience for our undergraduate and graduate students across all campuses.
