WVU President Gordon Gee addressed the Faculty Senate on Monday, revealing his plans to step down from his role as president after his contract extension expires on June 30, 2025. Gee expressed his intentions to return to the WVU College of Law and resume teaching. Initially, his contract was set to end in June 2024, but the WVU Board of Governors recently voted to extend it by another year.
Gee spoke about his desire to return to the College of Law, where he began his career at WVU. In 1979, he was appointed as the dean of the College of Law and later became WVU’s president for the first time in 1981.
