Bureaucracy Busters

Tired of red tape? Let’s cut it and save time and money. With your help, the Bureaucracy SWOT Committee known as “Bureaucracy Busters” is streamlining WVU procedures. Their primary goal is to identify existing University policies and processes which are overly-complicated and limit our ability to think big and be strategic. Visit the Bureaucracy Busters website to learn more and browse improved policies. You can also submit a new idea, share how an updated policy or procedure has helped, or let the Committee know if something needs more attention or training.
