Division of DEI

The Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion exists because WVU is always striving to create the safe, diverse, welcoming community we all deserve.

DEI Trainings

The Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion offers a DEI Classroom series to allow individuals in our campus and broader community to participate in trainings and educational opportunities without having to belong to a group that is requesting and/or receiving these trainings.

Some examples include:

  • Activating the potential of a diverse team
  • Addressing discrimination
  • Being an ally
  • Engaging bystanders to help others
  • Identifying abusive behaviors
  • Implicit Bias
  • Interacting across cultures
  • Promoting a diverse, inclusive working environment
  • Protecting children and minors on campus
  • Supporting survivors of power-based personal violence

To request an in-person training, please use our online form, filling it out as completely as possible so our Education Team can best serve you.

DEI Council

Many of those committees are already up and running, and we continue to collaborate with others on campus to activate additional committees.
