Morgantown, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia University president James clements still wants to improve employee salaries and benefits but says the recession may delay action.
In media interviews this week, Clements said WVU needs to get creative about new revenue streams.
The university cannot rely solely on student tuition and state funding, both of which have limits.
Rather, he says WVU needs to conduct more research and earn more grants.
He also says it should consider business partnerships and entrepreneurial services.
Clements also says he expects to choose a chancellor for the Health Sciences Center and a provost in about six weeks.
Former provost Gerald Lang stepped down after a master's degree scandal involving the Governor's daughter that also ended former president Mike Garrison's term.
