MONTGOMERY, WV (AP) -

West Virginia University Institute of Technology is aiming to become a nationally recognized undergraduate science, technology, engineering and mathematics teaching institution.

This vision is part of a revised strategic plan announced Monday by the university.

The WVU Tech 2020 plan's goals include engaging undergraduate students in a challenging academic environment and excelling in scholarly activity, professional development and innovation.

Another goal is to advance national awareness, international activity and global engagement.

The plan also calls for enhancing West Virginians' well-being and quality of life.

WVU Tech CEO Carolyn Long says in a news release that the Montgomery school has entered an era of revival and rededication.

A steering committee comprised of representatives from across the campus is leading the strategic plan.
