CENTER FOR LEARNNG, ADVISING, AND STUDENT SUCCESS LEARNING GOALS

We will provide academic initiatives and create an environment that will empower and support students by creating opportunities to gain confidence, take responsibility, and develop intrinsic motivation -- thereby enabling students to achieve personal and academic success at WVU.

Students will:

  • Make a successful transition to the WVU environment, will persist through their first year, and will return for their second year at WVU.
  • Actively engage in career planning and will select an academic major by the end of their freshman year.
  • Acquire and employ academic and critical thinking skills, and will become more independent, self-confident, and efficient learners through the development of improved self-management skills.
  • Develop global perspective through positive experiences of diversity and inclusion.
