Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission

Charleston, W.Va.



The commission is responsible for developing, establishing and overseeing the implementation of a public-policy agenda for West Virginia’s four-year colleges and universities. A two-year grant underwrites the design and startup costs of a text-messaging platform pilot that provides 4,500 students at 14 high-need high schools with counseling and resources to help them transition from high school to college.
