We are here.

The Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion has been working with leaders across WVU to develop diversity, equity and inclusion committees at all of our Schools, Colleges and Units. Many of those committees are already up and running, and we continue to collaborate with others on campus to activate additional committees.

 Later this year the Vice President of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Meshea L. Poore, Esq. will take the next step to assemble the Chairs of each Committee into an overarching DEI Council to develop goals, best practices, and ensure that we, as Mountaineers, are creating the safe, diverse, and welcoming community we all deserve.

Know Your Rights

Knowing what resources are available on- and off-campus gives you the tools you need to help yourself and others who have experienced gender-based discrimination, including sexual violence, power-based personal violence and harassment. WVU has a zero-tolerance policy for these types of offenses and is pro-actively working to make them rare; but it’s on us as a Mountaineer family to help one another wherever and whenever we can.

Diversity Ambassador

Caitlin Fulp

Junior/ Political Science and Communication Studies

Caitlin Fulp is a senior Political Science and Communication Studies major. She is currently serving her second year as a Diversity Ambassador. She is also a student worker at the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. As a woman of color and member of the LGBQT+ community Caitlin finds it extremely important that students are able to have conversations about inclusivity on campus. As a Diversity Ambassador she hopes to facilitate these conversations. She wants to encourage other students to speak out about their experiences and lead conversations of their own. She intends to use her position to make WVU a place where everyone can feel welcomed so she can leave WVU knowing she created a sense of unity on campus.
