Culture of Excellence

WVU Law students are always doing outstanding things—we hear about them, we see them. The mission of the Culture of Excellence Program is to officially recognize these outstanding students and/or student organizations.

Exemplary students or organizations may show excellence in a number of ways, including volunteerism, random acts of kindness, or outstanding co-curricular or extracurricular performance.
