Fairmont State University hosted an Open House at the Charles Pointe facility in conjunction with the Harrison County Chamber of Commerce’s Business After Hours to allow the community to see the new space.
During today’s bi-monthly meeting, the Fairmont State University Board of Governors approved a proposed academic restructure that will reorganize the current two college and four school model to a two college model. The proposal now goes before the West Virginia HEPC and then on to the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).
Dr. Erica Harvey, a professor of chemistry at Fairmont State University, has been named one of five finalists for the Faculty Merit Foundation’s annual Professor of the Year award. Harvey was nominated by Academic Affairs for her work in and outside of the classroom.
In recognition of Fairmont State University’s dedication to educating students that will help the aviation industry continue to soar, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft Services created a model plane and presented it to the University.
The model is a Q400 turboprop plane, according to John Moon, program manager for Bombardier. He explained that it’s a leading aircraft in the industry and built for comfort.
In February, Fairmont State University entered a lease to occupy the second floor of the Greater Bridgeport Convention and Visitors Bureau in Charles Pointe. The University’s vision to be able to offer more options for nontraditional students in Harrison County through the leased space is coming to life.
Dr. Richard Harvey, provost and vice president of academic affairs, said there are so many opportunities on the horizon with this space.
