Promoting WV tourism and livability

OVERVIEW

West Virginia can increase tourism spending and showcase the best of West Virginia by leveraging the state’s valuable assets. To advance these efforts, we are creating and expanding multidisciplinary tourism teams. WVU and Marshall are working on top needs identified by the Tourism Office. University students from both schools, along with dozens of community leaders and organizations across the state are joining forces to generate priorities to realize our state’s strong tourism promise.
