WVU researchers are leading commercial-scale research and development of two new innovations at the country’s most efficient coal-fired power plant in Maidsville. The devices, a corrosion sensor invented at WVU and a gas sensor invented at Los Alamos National Laboratory, could make coal combustion more efficient with fewer emissions and fewer unplanned outages saving millions of dollars.


Emily Calandrelli, Ginny Thrasher, Judith Feinberg, Ann Chester, Sara Berzingi and Daniel Brewster are among the presenters at the inaugural TEDx WVU March 2.

At WVU, sports are serious business and making sure that fans don’t miss a minute of the action is a top priority for WVU Athletics. The department relies on a team of dedicated student workers to capture the live action that appears on the video boards during home games. While most of these students come from the Reed College of Media, one particularly talented cameraman happens to be from the Statler College.
