HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Marshall University President Stephen Kopp is giving an update on the state of the university in Washington.
The Huntington school says about 200 people are expected to attend the Tuesday event. The crowd is to include West Virginia's congressional delegation as well as area alumni and supporters.
Officials say the program is aimed at highlighting the university's progress and showcase the impact of federally funded research projects.
Kopp is expected to discuss the new construction under way in Huntington, including the new Arthur Weisberg Family Engineering Complex. He also will talk about Marshall's record enrollment over the past two years, the financial condition of the university and private fundraising efforts.
Kopp will be joined by athletic director Mike Hamrick, head football coach Doc Holliday and men's basketball coach Tom Herrion.
