MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (KDKA/AP) – U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller is getting his own school at West Virginia University.

The retiring senator joined WVU President Gordon Gee and others on Saturday in Morgantown to announce the launch of the John D. Rockefeller IV School of Policy and Politics.

According to a press release from WVU, the school will be “intensely focused on a deep academic study of ourselves, our world and its future.”

Rockefeller also is donating his Senate papers to the university.

“Senator Rockefeller is one of the most distinguished public servants in West Virginia’s history, so it is fitting that the senator’s legacy be forever preserved within the borders of the state he has served so well and faithfully for so long,” President Gee said in the press release.

Rockefeller is retiring in January after 30 years in the Senate. He also served as governor, secretary of state, in the House of Delegates and as president of West Virginia Wesleyan College.

His many contributions to the university include founding a nonprofit institute named after his mother that researches memory disorders and neurodegenerative diseases.
