A Letter from President Welch Hello UC Sports Fans, UC’s commitment “to educate each student for a life of productive work, enlightened living, and community involvement” is a mission that brings to each student countless opportunities and real responsibilities. Athletics plays a vital role in the life of the University and in accomplishing our mission. Teamwork, fitness, community involvement, and leadership are some of the many life-long learning opportunities acquired through athletics. The University’s men's basketball team provides growth experiences for student athletes and visibility for the university. It is an important part of our strong tradition of athletic success. We have championship teams competing in the new Mountain East Conference. We are fully committed to the philosophy of balance between athletics and academics that is the hallmark of the NCAA Division II. Accordingly, UC athletics combines the zeal to have the most successful teams with the expectation that each student athlete will represent the University superbly every day and everywhere.

The University of Charleston is committed to providing the best possible experiences for our students and also providing exciting spectator and involvement opportunities for residents of the greater Charleston community. I wish you and all of our talented student athletes the very best.

Sincerely,

Dr. Edwin H. Welch

UC’s History In its first 125 years, the University of Charleston has grown from a small seminary college to a nationally-recognized university comprised of four locations. UC was founded by the Southern Methodist denomination in 1888 as Barboursville Seminary in Barboursville, W.Va., and became a college in 1889. In 1901, it was renamed Morris Harvey College in honor of a prominent donor. During the Great Depression, the college moved to Charleston to take advantage of the larger metropolitan area. As a result of the merger between the Methodist church North and South, the college disaffiliated from the denomination and Morris Harvey College became independent in 1942. From 1935 to 1947, the college was located in downtown Charleston, holding classes in several separate buildings. During these years, the college grew steadily, in part because of a merger with Kanawha Junior College and an affiliation with the Mason College of Fine Arts and Music. Recognizing the need for a unified campus, in 1947 construction of the present facilities began on the south bank of the Kanawha River. The Board of Trustees changed the name from Morris Harvey College to the University of Charleston on December 13, 1978. On August 1, 2012 the University announced it entered into an agreement to establish new locations in Beckley and Martinsburg, W.Va., to replace Mountain State University, which was slated to go out of business in a few months. By January 1, 2013 UC-Beckley, UC-Martinsburg and UCOnline joined UC-Charleston as part of the University of Charleston. In a matter of four months, UC grew to 32 academic programs, over 360 9 employees and approximately 2,000 students.


University of Charleston Athletic Department

Dr. Bren Stevens Director of Athletics A native of Massachusetts, Stevens was recruited to what was then known as Morris Harvey College to play volleyball in 1976. As a player, she won both WVIAC and Mid-West Regional First-Team honors. After stints teaching in high school in Boston and in Kanawha County, Stevens was recruited to coach the University of Charleston volleyball squad in 1992. She has held multiple roles at UC, progressing from coaching volleyball and swimming to physical education instructor in 1996, assistant professor of sports administration in 2000, and associate athletic director in 2005. Stevens meanwhile earned a master’s degree in exercise physiology and a doctorate in education administration, putting those skills to work in the classroom and as senior woman administrator in the UC athletic department. 10
