Our commitment to diversity, equity,
and inclusion.

At the WVU Alumni Association, diversity and inclusion means celebrating and welcoming all backgrounds and experiences, including race, gender, ethnicity, ability, nationality, age, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status, and veteran status, among others.

Our Commitment

We aim to create connection and community for people who love WVU, with equity and inclusion for everyone. We also recognize that we need to do a better job of being inclusive. Therefore, our leadership has decided to take immediate action so that we can serve everyone wholeheartedly and create “One WVU” for all.
