WVU provides a collaborative and supportive environment that enables students to become active learners, effective leaders, responsible community members, and globally engaged citizens. To this end, the College is committed to the ideals of intellectual and personal growth. Naturally, this includes continuing education opportunities offered by the College as well as partner institutions that share common values, academic rigor, and a student-oriented focus - such as Keiser University. Through quality teaching, learning, and research, Keiser University is committed to providing students with opportunities to develop the knowledge, understanding, and skills necessary for successful employment. Committed to a "students first" philosophy, Keiser University prepares graduates for careers in a variety of fields, including dietetics and nutrition. Together, WVU and Keiser University will offer students a meaningful path to success in both their academic and occupational pursuits.
This agreement is in an effort to establish a cooperative relationship between WVU and KU to facilitate post-graduation matriculation of WVU students. Qualified WVU students will have completed the Bachelor of Science in Food and Nutrition Science and desire to complete the Master of Science with Distance Learning Internship Program with KU. This cooperative relation provides for a number of benefits to participating students as referenced below in the Benefits section.
