CAMPUS AT A GLANCE & KEY FACTS


The mission of Concord University is to provide quality, liberal arts based education, to foster scholarly activities, and to serve the regional community.

 

Concord University provides rigorous programs, primarily at the baccalaureate level, which prepare students to pursue various graduate study and career options and to assume leadership and professional roles in a multicultural society. In keeping with its tradition of service to the region, the University will offer a limited number of carefully selected graduate degrees. While we incorporate a variety of educational methodologies/technologies, our size and the caring dedication of our faculty, staff and administration are the principal assurances of a quality educational opportunity at Concord University.

 

As a learning community, Concord University is committed to furthering knowledge through professional development activities and programs, through research, and through the application, publication and appreciation of scholarly efforts.

 

The primary purpose of Concord’s mission is academic; however, the service the University provides to its state and region goes beyond the classroom. Concord University contributes to the quality of cultural and economic life in southern West Virginia through collaboration with both public and private organizations and agencies and through extension of its support and assistance into the region it serves.

 


Location:  Southern West Virginia, about 90 miles southeast of the state capital, Charleston, and about 25 miles north of the WV/Virginia border.                                         

Enrollment: 1,800-1,900

 

Other interesting tidbits:   Concord University is a public institution, part of the West Virginia Higher Education System, and was established as a Branch State Normal School in 1872.  Concord takes its name from the original name of the settlement in Mercer County, Concord Church.  The church was established in 1858 on land donated by Colonel Henderson French.  Colonel French's wife, Sarah, was tasked with the naming of the church.  On the day of the dedication, Sarah said, "This church is where all denominations shall worship together in harmony, sweet fellowship and concord, and it shall be named Concord Church."
