The Alliance for the Economic Development of Southern West Virginia is a collaboration among the 11 public higher education institutions in southern West Virginia.

Over the past 5 years, the Alliance has reached more than 11,000 West Virginians through projects and programming on #WVSolutions.

The Alliance is focused on fostering an environment for economic growth. We have the talent, expertise and resources needed to solve our own challenges and through the Alliance, we will pool our resources and knowledge to build a stronger southern West Virginia.
