The West Virginia University community is invited to a reception to welcome home Dr. E. Gordon Gee as president of West Virginia University. The event, hosted by the WVU Board of Governors, will take place at Erickson Alumni Center from 2:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 10. Light refreshments will be served.

President Emeritus of The Ohio State University and former WVU President E. Gordon Gee was named Friday as president of WVU, effective in early January. WVU’s Board of Governors voted unanimously to approve the selection, and the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission also unanimously voted its approval last week.
