West Liberty University is unveiling plans for its largest fundraising campaign ever.

According to the Associated Press, President emeritus Clyde Campbell will chair the effort, and details are being announced Friday afternoon.

The West Liberty University Foundation is the school's fund-raising arm and will share the work. The foundation has 30 new members and is led by newly elected chairman Les DeFelice.

West Liberty has about 2,700 students, and a faculty and staff of 433. The announcement coincides with homecoming weekend festivities.

The school has been in a silent phase of fundraising for several years.
