Diversity Initiatives

Diversity Initiatives are a key part of West Virginia University’s commitment to foster diversity and inclusion. Programs like Diversity Week, the Chancellor Scholars Program, the Neil S. Bucklew Award, and the Colloquium for Aspiring Minority Doctoral Candidates, encourage the recruitment and retention of students and faculty from underrepresented groups. WVU’s Safe Zone training works to foster an atmosphere of support and celebration for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, and Questioning individuals on the WVU campus.
