David Belcher, WCU, 100313D

WCU Chancellor, David Belcher, was the featured speaker at a recent lunchtime meeting of the Sylva Rotary Club.  Belcher spoke proudly of numerous achievements by WCU in recent months, including a strategic plan that incorporated local community input and enrollment growth that saw WCU’s student body exceed 10,000 for the first time ever.  Aiming for the highest level of excellence, the university will discontinue 23 academic programs, while at the same time it identified eight programs meriting even greater emphasis and support.  Newly certified degrees in engineering and Doctor of Nursing were cited by Belcher as representative of Western’s commitment to maintaining strong connections between the classroom and real world needs.
