The mission of West Liberty University is to provide our students the opportunity for a high quality undergraduate, graduate, and professional education through appropriate formats and venues.

West Liberty University is a forward-looking, four-year public university steeped in a rich heritage as West Virginia’s oldest institution of higher education.  Established as West Liberty Academy in 1837 (26 years before the state was admitted to the Union), it was created to respond to the need for higher educational opportunities west of the Appalachian ridge.
