The Higher Education Policy Commission’s Statewide Compact for the Future of West Virginia, emphasize accountability based on performance at every level of the educational system. From 2007-2012 West Liberty has annually submitted information to the HEPC in the Compact document, Charting the Future. The final update was submitted in November of 2013, and officially approved by the HEPC in February 2014.
Preliminary work on a new Compact document, Leading the Way 2013-18, began in the fall of 2013. It is a collaborative effort of administrators, staff, and faculty, and the initial target numbers and rationales were submitted and approved by the HEPC at their February 2014 meeting.
The HEPC hosted the 2014 Leading the Way Conference for all 4-year institutions of higher learning in Charleston on March 31 and April 1, 2014. The Commission provided a great opportunity for collaboration and sharing among educators and staff.
