WVSU, Bridgemont CTC begin partnership discussions


West Virginia State University and Bridgemont Community and Technical College are in talks to collaborate.

The potential partnership will provide greater educational opportunities in the areas of business, including accounting and management, computer and information technology, digital design and print communications, general studies, teacher education and health sciences, according to officials at WVSU and BCTC. "Bridgemont CTC is excited about these discussions, as a partnership would provide increased access for students to continue their education, and therefore become part of a highly skilled workforce in the greater Kanawha Valley and across West Virginia," said Bridgemont CTC President Dr. Jo Harris in a news release on Thursday.

"At WVSU and across the state's higher education system, we are collectively committed to providing high quality academic programming options for all students," said WVSU President Dr. Brian O. Hemphill.

Administrative and academic leadership from both institutions are currently exploring partnership details including timelines, requirements and methods.
