John D. Rockefeller IV 

Public Service Celebration: Honoring the Legacy, Embracing the Future 

Saturday, April 16, 2016 
2:00 - 3:30 p.m. 
West Virginia University 
The Erickson Alumni Center 
Kennedy Club Room 
1 Alumni Drive Morgantown, WV 26504 

Students from the John D. Rockefeller IV School of Policy and Politics, as well as former Rockefeller staff members, will be in attendance to hear how the first releases from the thousands of archival boxes will become living lectures and vivid lessons on policy, people and politics by our Rockefeller Archivist Danielle Emerling, and new Rockefeller School Fellow Jay Cole. 

The inaugural scholarship awardee of the John D. Rockefeller IV Award for Leadership in Policy and Politics will also be announced at this event. 

We also hope you will also consider finding time this spring to visit the Wise Library’s Rockefeller Gallery to see the Legacy of Leadership, exhibiting some of Senator Rockefeller's key legacy accomplishments. 

This is a special time on the campus of West Virginia University and we hope you can join as we all celebrate Senator Rockefeller and his gift to West Virginia and the nation.

About the School

Woodburn Circle

The John D. Rockefeller IV School of Policy and Politics is a new unit within the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences. By formally linking the existing departments of Political Science and Public Administration and the degree programs in International Studies, Leadership Studies, and Legal Studies, we aim to provide students with a top-quality education in these fields; to produce cutting-edge research with important prescriptive implications; and to work with partners in the university community and government offices to support the creation of wise public policies that will improve the quality of life for West Virginians and people around the world.

"Students will become tomorrow’s leaders and public servants. To do so, they will have to have a deep and abiding understanding that life is more meaningful if it is lived serving others. But they will also be thinkers, digging into a great range of issues with seriousness and a persistent pursuit of answers, solutions and bold new ideas.”
--- U.S. Sen. John D. Rockefeller IV
