The Morgantown area has so much to offer its residents and businesses – including an uncompromising combination of labor, capital, education, research and quality of life. These are all important factors to attract and retain the best employers and employees. The community also enjoys a beneficial, community-focused, cooperative working relationship that exists between local governments, WVU, non-profits and the private sector. This relationship, combined with the many other attributes of the area, has fostered a climate of confidence and accomplishment, which, in turn, encourages additional investment in the community by the private, public, and institutional sectors. This positive investment climate has produced some outstanding local civic leaders, entrepreneurs, developers and philanthropists.
The presence of West Virginia University, a skilled and educated labor force, a large health care industry, some of the best public schools in the country, great scenic and natural beauty, outstanding recreational, cultural, and entertainment programs and facilities, and the continued growth of advanced technology industries and government installations along the Interstate 79 and Interstate 68 Corridors…these all translate to a promising future here, one of the best small towns in the country – It’s Morgantown!
