Past dean and faculty emeritus of the West Virginia University College of Education and Human Services, Ernest R. Goeres, has established The Dr. Ernest R. Goeres Higher Education Administration Endowment Fund. The $25,000 endowed fund will provide support to the college for research, teaching and service activities, as well as for the “extras” that come with a highly respected program.
Goeres served as an assistant dean, associate dean and interim dean of CEHS, before serving as the director of the higher education administration program. As a retired administrator, he understands first-hand the importance of discretionary funds. His decision to give back to the college that he helmed for years was instinctual.
