The end of an era, the start of a legacy

Thousands of students and hundreds of faculty have passed through the West Virginia University School of Music during the 50-plus years Dr. James Miltenberger has been teaching piano there. While his final faculty performance with the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra will be April 20, his legacy will live on through a piano scholarship in his name.

WVU students and faculty focus on service and learning during international trips

West Virginia University students and faculty participate in service projects and learning events around the world, immersing themselves in a different culture and human experience. Recent examples include: a trip to Nicaragua where students provided care and distributed medical and dental supplies; others went to Timor-Leste to experience nation building in one of the world’s newest countries; and another group traveled to the Royal University for Women in Bahrain to debate the role of multiculturalism in social order.
