General education is “general” in several clearly identifiable ways: it is not directly related to a student‘s formal technical, vocational, or professional preparation; it is a part of every student‘s course of study, regardless of his or her area of emphasis; and it is intended to impart common knowledge, intellectual concepts, and attitudes that every educated person should possess. Promotional materials include flyers, signs, posters, handouts, t-shirts, web graphics and similar items.
Listed below is detailed information on West Virginia University at Parkersburg’s accreditation, strategic plan and data regarding enrollment, retention and student demographics.
