Linked In

West Virginia's higher education system has a new senior administrator.

The West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission and the West Virginia Council for Community and Technical College Education said Matt Turner will be the agencies' new executive vice chancellor for administration.

Turner will begin in that role Aug. 1. The West Virginia native currently serves as chief of staff at Marshall University. He previously served as director of communications for then-Gov. Joe Manchin.

Officials say that in the new role Turner will carry out policy directives for West Virginia's four- and two-year public higher education institutions. That includes facilitating intergovernmental relations and overseeing state-level student financial aid programs.
