West Virginia University is opening a new center for the humanities to support innovative, collaborative, and interdisciplinary faculty research in all humanities fields. Dr. Ryan Claycomb will serve as founding interim director.
West Virginia University will be participating as an affiliate partner in a collective effort spearheaded by the Council of Graduate Schools to gather and use data about the careers of Ph.D. students and alumni. The broad-based survey will collect data about Ph.D. careers in both STEM and humanities fields and is funded by the National Science Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
West Virginia University researchers have been awarded a five-year, $2 million grant from the National Science Foundation to improve classroom experiences for engineering and computer science students.
