Strategic Compass

KEEP in Action

The strategic compass outlines infinite goals that we strive to meet each day as a School of Medicine. Annually, this document is reviewed and implementation plans, finite goals, are developed to keep us moving forward. And while we continually pursue our vision, we appreciate the significant value in the journey.

“I love connecting with people and helping them achieve their goals. I hope to help our new clinic be successful and I hope to train empathetic audiologists who are confident in their skills, are reliable and have integrity in their work.”


Our learners and educators gain perspective and scope from one another; we provide the foundation for their journey.

“WVU's audiology program allows for hands-on learning and clinical experience from the very beginning. It's really beneficial to apply what you learn in class to a clinical situation early on because it allows for better understanding. I have loved all of my clinical placements.”


We take our calling in life seriously and work tirelessly to ensure we provide opportunity for others to discover theirs.

“Watching our students and trainees grow and become more competent and curious researchers is one of the most rewarding aspects of my role. I love seeing them question me, themselves and the research. Their drive to make discoveries each day inspires me to do the same.”
