The Social Justice Liaisons will be meeting April 19, 2012, from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. in the Greenbrier Room of the Mountainlair.
WVU’s Social Justice Liaisons are a group of individuals from various departments on campus who work together to tackle relevant diversity and inclusiveness issues that come up in practice throughout the university. They are educated and trained on practical issues. The liaisons serve as a link from the President’s Office for Social Justice to WVU’s many departments, colleges, and campuses. Meetings are held regularly for the purpose of discussing topics of mutual interest and for the liaisons to receive training.
Most recently, this March, Social Justice Liaisons received training in the topic: “Treatment of Students and Employees With Disabilities at WVU Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, Its Amendments and GINA: What You Need To Know, Where You Need To Go, and Who You Need To Contact”. This training was conducted by Mary Roberta “Bobbie” Brandt, JD, ADA Coordinator and Assoc. Director for the WVU President’s Office for Social Justice.
Social Justice Liaisons are appointed by the Executive Officer for Social Justice based on recommendations of administrative heads.
