Chambers Fellows Program

The visionary namesake behind John Chambers College of Business & Economics is empowering underrepresented students to transform West Virginia’s economy through entrepreneurship and innovation via a new Chambers Fellows program.

Beginning Fall 2021, up to four students majoring in entrepreneurship, management information systems or computer engineering (with a minor in entrepreneurship) will be selected each academic year as Chambers Fellows.

“I’m excited to partner with leaders at WVU, like President Gordon Gee and Chambers College Dean Javier Reyes, to contribute resources that will help my home state become a startup state and model for the rest of our country and the world,” said Chambers.

Student Organizations

As a business student, we know it’s important to build relationships. That’s why we offer 30+ student organizations that are specific to Chambers College.

Beginning in the spring semester, we will be sharing videos of our organizations on the Chambers College Instagram account – @wvuchambers – to highlight the different business clubs and orgs that other business students can get involved in.

We’re asking leaders of our organizations to submit a 60-second, vertical video explaining your club and why someone should join.

Email your video to or submit it here.
