What is the "Communiversity"?

Communiversity means the University is the community, and the community is the University. We are a community based in service, learning and the pursuit of knowledge. As WVU Tech moves forward, our goal is a united community in which the city of Beckley and surrounding areas are united in our mission to support learning and discovery. This is important to our collective work and to our land grant mission.

The Pillars of Communiversity

Partnerships and building bridges.

Caring for one another in the communities in the Southern 13 counties.

Connecting with and empowering youth.

West Virginia University Institute of Technology's mission to provide an accessible and supportive environment in which students are guided to be active and contributing members of society will help move Beckley forward. We work tirelessly to foster intellectual and personal growth through comprehensive educational experiences, and within our Communiversity, we want to make education accessible to anyone and everyone within our Beckley Communiversity.

At the core of our vision is the belief that WVU Tech is indistinguishable from Beckley, and Beckley is synonymous with WVU Tech. Side by side, we are architects of positive change. Our effort is driven by our knowledge, resources and dedication. Through collaboration, we are not just addressing the challenges of our Communiversity; we are solving them. Our unity is the driving force behind our commitment to enhancing the lives of all those who call our community home.
