West Virginia University Athletics is comprised of student-athletes, coaches, staff and stakeholders from all walks of life. While our individual differences make us unique, we all share a common bond as Mountaineers. We are committed to creating and maintaining a diverse, inclusive and equitable environment for Every Mountaineer.
West Virginia University Athletics recognizes that, as a microcosm of society, sport is not exempt from the perils of inequality, bias and discrimination. Understanding that sport can be a platform for positive change, we take responsibility of our unique opportunity to unify people of all social identities.
The culture of West Virginia University Athletics promotes diversity, equity and inclusion by continuously assessing: 1) Recruitment and retention, 2) Department wide education and training, and 3) Student-athlete needs. Championing these three foundational pillars will create sustainable and quantifiable impact within our department and the greater Mountaineer community.
