WV higher education cuts possible - Wendy Holdren, Register-Herald

“Higher education is actually in danger,” he said. “It’s not a tough thing to define. It’s a tough thing to get a resolution on.” Hall’s comments Friday morning came just minutes after a presentation from Marshall University President Dr. Jerry Gilbert about higher education’s role in economic development, especially in southern West Virginia. Gilbert outlined a number of collaborations through Marshall, including the Robert C. Byrd Institute, which have helped spur job creation. He said existing companies must be retained and expanded upon. Regional development authority grants must be properly utilized. Jobs must be brought to the coal-impacted areas of West Virginia.
