We invite your University to set up a Branch Campus (Shore U) here on the Eastern Shore of Virginia (ESVA).
The Eastern Shore of Virginia (ESVA) lacks a 4-year University. Our Foundation was established to remedy that.
WE ENVISAGE our Foundation supporting you financially and in the Community.
WE ENVISAGE you starting off by leasing or owning some of the 200+ vacant acres of Accomack County’s Industrial/Business Park at competitive rates. The Park is facilitated with the usual roads and utilities (power/water/sewer/fiber) and, unusually, a working 5000 X 100 feet airstrip (MFV). It is contiguous with the Eastern Shore Community College (ESCC) whose new President will want to coordinate with you.
WE ENVISAGE you starting small with graduating students from ESCC on programs designed to be attractive to industries expected to be important to Virginia (STEM, teaching, medical, coding) and attracting students from other counties, states, and countries.
WE ENVISAGE you starting off with programs at the Junior (3rd year) and Senior (4th year) taking advantage of your coordination with ESCC and its sister Colleges, leading to you issuing accredited baccalaureate degrees.
WE ENVISAGE you easily attracting students and staff to our area because of its low cost-of-housing, natural beauty, recreational opportunities, history, 3 University Research Stations, proximity to the historic Hampton Roads area (1.7 million population), and important institutions such as Wallops—Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport (MARS), United States Navy-Norfolk (the largest naval base in the World) and associated ship-building industries, Dover Air Force Base, and Naval Air Station-Oceana in Virginia Beach, and our strategic positioning in the middle of the Atlantic Seaboard.
WE ENVISAGE you growing to 2000 students and moving on to Masters level accreditation and beyond.
