Manchin Statement on the Decision to Relocate WVU Tech

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) today issued the following statement on the decision to relocate West Virginia University Institute of Technology.

“I am deeply saddened by the news of the closing of this historic educational institution in Montgomery. However, after talking to President Gee, I am optimistic that proper replacement options for the current students of WVU Tech will be made available quickly and that viable opportunities will be available for the city of Montgomery. We have a responsibility to make sure every student who is willing to work hard has the resources to achieve their educational goals, and no stone will be left unturned in searching for a solution.”
