Shared Services


The WVU Shared Services Center (SSC) is a centralized service-delivery team that supports the business activities of WVU, including financial administration, human resources (Talent and Culture), and sponsored projects funding/grants. Customers can receive assistance by calling Shared Services at 304-293-6006, or chatting in the Shared Services Community. Visit for more information.
