West Virginia University’s annual Research Week was started by the Vice President
for Research in the 2018-2019 academic year to highlight and celebrate the
faculty, staff and students who shape the University as a top-tier, R1 institution.
Events have spanned university-wide and in various platforms: from the virtual
research and poster sessions by the College of Creative Arts and CEHS-CPASS, to
an in-person open house in Statler College, plus networking events held by the
"Research Week is a way for us all to pause and celebrate the tremendous amount of
work that goes into being an R1 university and to say, 'thank you,' to all who
make it possible," said Melanie Page, associate vice president for creative and
scholarly activities at the Research Office. "We hope you can join us and we look
forward to celebrating with you."
