Shepherd University, recognizing the value of collaborative learning and creative inspiration, seeks to establish a Center for Regional Innovation that will attract current and future leaders and give their ideas space to take shape and take off.

West Virginia’s Innovation Economy

West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle region is primed to become a regional hub for the state’s innovation economy. Proximity to major urban centers presents ample opportunity for collaboration and bringing industry growth into the state.

Resources and potential change-makers are already present in the region. Developing a powerful forum for partnerships, collaboration, and alignment of resources will empower this region to lead West Virginia and the nation as a model of collaborative innovation for economic transformation.

Shepherd University’s Center for Regional Innovation is committed to developing partnerships with individuals, companies and organizations interested in exploring how collaboration with the Center for Regional Innovation can enhance competitive advantage.
