West Virginia Higher Education Faculty Issues 2021-2022

The ACF advises the West Virginia Legislature to provide a high quality and affordable education for West Virginians, and to recognize the continuum of state-supported learning, from Pre-K through college:

  • Ensure that higher education is funded to develop the educated workforce needed to grow the state economy. 
  • Support an initiative to recruit and retain global talent in West Virginia.
  • Ensure that the changing employee healthcare needs are effectively and continually met.
  • Ensure transparent and fair employment practices by strengthening due process protections, enhancing shared governance, and preserving tenure and academic freedom.
  • Support the improvement of the state’s broadband coverage. 
  • Ensure institutions of higher education are able to regulate the safety and security of their campuses
