Back to Our Actions

Diversity Week

From Oct. 10 to Oct. 16, 2021, the Health Sciences community joined the entire West Virginia University campus in Diversity Week. The goal of Diversity Week is to promote celebration, education, and understanding of different identities and experiences present on our campuses.

This year's theme was “Cultural Conversations: Celebrating the Social Significance of Ethnicity” — which allowed the WVU community an opportunity to explore the ways ethnic and pan-ethnic identities lead to shared social, cultural and historical experiences that can be a source of pride and belonging, while also being a source of conflict and prejudice.

Health Sciences hosted a number of events in conjunction with Diversity Week. Although the week has passed, you can watch several of the recorded sessions in our WVU Health Sciences Diversity Week playlist.

You can also learn more about our values, our commitment, our plan and our actions on our Health Sciences Diversity site. Take action by registering for ongoing DEI training; by learning more about Community & Campus Resources; or by joining a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee.
