Representatives of higher education institutions from across the state will come together February 21 for Higher Education Day at the Legislature, an annual event held to recognize West Virginia's colleges and universities and highlight the post secondary opportunities available across the state.

Participating institutions include West Virginia's public four-year and two-year colleges and universities, along with independent four-year institutions. Each campus will distribute information and have representatives on hand to answer questions.

The event is hosted by Paul Hill, chancellor of the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission; James Skidmore, chancellor of the Community and Technical College System of West Virginia; and Ben Exley, executive director of West Virginia Independent Colleges and Universities.

Campus displays will be available from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the upper rotunda of the Capitol.

West Virginia's higher education community also will be recognized with presentations in the Senate and House of Delegates during morning floor sessions, in addition to a proclamation presentation in the Governor's reception room at 11:30 a.m.
