Who We Are

Established in 2019, the CRC grew out of extensive research and dedication at WVU. With generous support from the One Foundation, it has transformed into a prominent community-oriented learning center. A significant milestone was reached in Fall 2022 when the CRC attained academic recognition within WVU's Eberly College, solidifying its role. After a decade of development and three years of meticulous refinement, the CRC has unveiled a new, streamlined structure. This evolution is geared towards advancing higher education, promoting community-engaged research, and fostering leadership development. By leveraging the resources of a land grant institution, the CRC is committed to enhancing the well-being of local communities.

“The world is in crisis. We need one another to vision together, to creatively imagine, to collaboratively strategize and to take action to heal our communities. To achieve this unity of thought and action, we need love, sacrifice and to share our gifts with those who seek.”

Marz Attar, Founder of the One Foundation
