Economic and Workforce Development

Our Mission

Economic and Workforce Development (CEWD) is expected to provide university-wide and statewide leadership for building linkages and collaborative efforts with organizations and agencies including the W. Va. Clearinghouse for Workforce Education; state, regional, and local institutions of learning (public schools, vocational schools, and higher education institutions); state business and industry councils; firefighters and emergency personnel: labor organizations; and state economic development groups.

CEWD comprises four units:

Community Resources and Economic Development delivers educational programs and technical assistance to strengthen the capacity of citizens and organizations

Fire Service Extension provides critical, high quality training to emergency responders.

The Institute for Labor Studies and Research supports and strengthens the trade union movement, improves labor-management relations, promotes social justice within unions, and enhances labor’s role in the community.

Safety and Health Extension provides safety and health training, technical assistance, and applied research for employers and employees.

Asset Mapping

Five Counties in the Northern Panhandle from Hancock to Wetzel County have been working together to promote regional tourism efforts. The following asset map has been created to help us identify tourism assets for our region. Please check out the assets identified in Brooke County and if you see a site we are missing on the Brooke County map, please add the site or send me a picture with the description you prefer and I will add it!

This can be a useful tool to promote our area as a destination for regional and statewide tourism!
