CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - More than 50 West Virginia University undergraduates are heading to the Capitol to promote research funding.

One of the students participating Wednesday is Stephen Sullivan, who has researched the natural gas futures market. He says the way the industry is regulated has a direct effect on the state’s economic competitiveness.

Students will represent the College of Engineering and Mineral Resources, arts and sciences and the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design.

The day is aimed at giving students a chance to network and present their work to legislators.

WVU President Gordon Gee is the keynote speaker.

WVU and Marshall University collaborated to organize the event.
