The NASA West Virginia Space Grant Consortium (WVSGC) includes five West Virginia Universities and seven West Virginia Colleges. West Virginia University is the lead institution. Operations of the Consortium are governed by a set of "Bylaws" and a Board of Directors consisting of one member from each affiliate. WVSGC's mission is to develop a statewide infrastructure that will enhance the state’s competitiveness in aerospace research, education, and industrial activities, in part through support of research efforts of Consortium faculty and students in area of interest to NASA.
