College of Education and Human Services

Why we need your support

 

Higher education is increasingly competitive, and the need to sustain Mountaineer excellence has never been more important.

Our greatest needs include support for student scholarships, research projects, building and technology enhancements, as well as specific needs for each of our five departments.

 

How you can help

 

The funds listed need your support, but with the ever-increasing need for private philanthropic giving, a gift supporting the College, or one of our five distinguished departments will be greatly appreciated.

Greatest Needs
The CEHS Dean's Greatest Needs Fund assists the College with the greatest need at any given time. Annual gifts can support student travel to conferences, special programs and lectures for our students, and facility and technology upgrades.

Dr. Hugh Lindsay Hearing Aid Fund
Created in partnership with the Morgantown Rotary in 2017, this fund was established to provide hearing aids to low-income clients of the WVU Hearing Center in honor of Dr. Hugh Lindsay.

Scholarships
The CEHS General Scholarship Fund (2S160) awards financial support to students with financial need and academic promise. The opportunity to help defray a student's debt while they are pursuing their degree is truly appreciated.

Other Initiatives
Additionally, our departments and programs have individual greatest needs you can support:


Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders
Department of Counseling, Rehabilitation Counseling and Counseling Psychology
Department of Curriculum and Instruction/Literary Studies
Department of Learning Sciences and Human Development

Department of Special Education
Regents Bachelor of Arts program
