MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A meeting has been scheduled to discuss the future of West Virginia University Institute of Technology in Montgomery and WVU’s new satellite campus in Beckley.

The West Virginia University Board of Governors will hold the special meeting Tuesday in Morgantown. It will be held in at the Mountainlair student union.

A notice on the meeting sent Friday says a decision on WVU’s two southern campuses is possible. The two campuses are approximately 40 miles apart, with 1,200 students attending WVU Tech.

WVU completed its $8 million purchase of the former Mountain State University campus in Beckley in June. At the time, WVU said it hoped to offer classes there by fall 2016.

Carolyn Long is both the campus president of WVU Tech and the leader of the WVU Beckley campus.
