The presidents of Marshall and West Virginia universities are getting together to discuss the state's higher education issues.
 
Marshall's Stephen J. Kopp also will give WVU's E. Gordon Gee a private tour of Marshall's Huntington campus on Tuesday.
 
Gee is in his second stint as WVU's president. In March, the Higher Education Policy Commission approved his appointment by the university's Board of Governors. He also served as WVU's president from 1981 to 1985.
 
Both universities are in the midst of long-term infrastructure improvements.
 
Marshall's plan also focuses on upgrades in technology, student housing and student life. It includes landscaping enhancements and an overhaul of the Memorial Student Center.
 
WVU is in the midst of nearly $1 billion in construction projects on campus, its university health system and student housing.
