Persevering through the Pandemic

While spring is the perfect season for a fresh start, we cannot move forward unless we appreciate where we came from. 

This time last year, our campus had shut down, sports events were canceled, and classes were moving online for virtual learning. 

How we R1: Moving our Research Mission Forward 

I am honored to step into the role of Associate Dean for Research. There are three primary areas of importance in terms of research: intellectual contributions, external research funding, and Ph.D. production.  I have spent the last three months taking stock in these areas and I am happy to report that all three areas have never been stronger in the Chambers College.

Intellectual contributions are the first thing people think of when they hear the word research. Previous financial investments in research activity through summer support and research grants – combined with strong junior hiring and strategic senior hiring - have greatly increased the number and quality of intellectual contributions coming out of the College. During our last AACSB review period, College faculty averaged 140 peer-reviewed journal publications annually. That’s more than one per faculty member per year!  And these aren’t just in any journals. During the average year our faculty publish more than 10 A+ publications.

The Brief: Opportunities are Everywhere

It’s never too late to apply for a summer internship and we are here to help make the process as simple as possible. 

Our Center for Career Development (CCD) has virtual career assistance programs that can help you take the next step to finding opportunities. These meetings are available year round by appointment by contacting Sarah Glenn at Sarah.Glenn@mail.wvu.edu

Marketing Department Wins Big

This semester has been busy for the Chambers College Marketing Department. From sales competitions to a fun social media challenge, students have won big. 

Students have placed at three different sales competitions and have participated in a TikTok challenge to engage with faculty and take home a fun price. 

The Brief: The Rainbow After the Storm

It has been a year since the pandemic made its appearance and turned our world upside down. 

While so many things were up in the air, one thing was for certain: we were in this together.
