A message from the director

Greetings everyone! Hope you and your families are all well and keeping your heads up during this stressful time. Due to the social distancing required by the university, employees are on a stay at home order here at WVU. But even though our physical facility is closed, we want you to know that the CBC&R is still here, and will continue to reach out to you with information, and updates about what is going on with us, and what is happening here at WVU. We miss you, and we would like to hear from you as well. Keep us informed about what you are doing, how you are feeling, and what we can do to help you make it through the semester. We will be reaching out to you through social media, and we are also checking email, and any phone messages at the Center (304) 293-7029. So, keep your eyes open. We have some things planned. And remember, we’re in this together. Sincerely, Ms. Fuller
