PROFILE

The Health Sciences and Technology Academy of West Virginia University (WVU) is a 9th-12th grade math and science program which encourages aspirations, opens doors, and empowers minority and underrepresented students and rural communities. This partnership among the numerous units of the state's land grant university and many Appalachian communities brings minority and underrepresented students and teachers to campus each summer for clinic, laboratory, and classroom training and activities. The partnership then provides the infrastructure and support for community-based science projects mentored by teachers, health professions, students and volunteer community leaders during the school year.
