YOU at WVU – Embracing technology to meet the needs of our students

The College of Applied Human Sciences (CAHS) recognizes that the wants and needs of our students have changed, and that to best serve them we need to be able to act faster and provide a more personalized support structure. Our students have embraced technology as a source of solutions and support, and CAHS has developed a new web-based app focused on the overall well-being of students that meets them right where they are.  The YOU at WVU app simultaneously delivers personalized content virtually while also working to connect students to people and physical resources on campus that can help them achieve personal and academic success. YOU at WVU bridges that gap between their digital world and WVU’s campus. 

YOU at WVU provides curated personalized resources – no two students experience the app in the same way. The student decides what their priorities and challenges are, and YOU at WVU delivers relevant content to help them thrive, succeed, and matter. Students are first introduced to the app during New Student Orientation, but it is also woven into their program curriculum through the First-Year Seminar, and other courses making it an embedded part of their college experience.

The app is there for students 24/7 – just as they expect it to be. Importantly, the YOU at WVU app is confidential. Any data related to what students search for or read is de-identified and the data will never be sold.

YOU at WVU is a marker of our commitment to the success of your student. Talk with them about the app and encourage them to use it.
