Message from the President
Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Five years ago, when I was WCU’s Vice President for External Operations, I helped launch our Center City Philadelphia campus. Our mission was to make the quality, value and reputation of a West Chester University education more accessible to those who live or work in the city of Philadelphia. We started out small at this site but grew quickly, and have continued to thrive. We now offer three undergraduate degrees and two graduate degrees. The newest of these programs is the Bachelor of Science in Business Management, which has admitted its first cohort of students and will begin offering classes in Philly this fall.

And that’s not all that has been going on at WCU in Philadelphia. Last month, we held a ribbon-cutting to celebrate our move from the third floor of the Mellon Independence Center to a spacious new academic suite in the concourse of that same building. We also expanded the Writing Center and transformed it into a Student Success Center that offers career readiness preparation in addition to writing assistance. I invite you to learn more about our Philadelphia campus.
