Academic Issues

Action Items

  • Create a Diversity and Inclusion Toolkit to provide basic information to assist faculty in understanding issues of diversity and inclusivity along with a guide of resources and best practices for faculty instruction related to diversity topics. A website, maintained in the Provost’s Office, would provide information about programs, training, workshops, events and resources.
  • To promote equality and tolerance, and to celebrate the dignity of all people, develop a Diversity Micro-Credentialing Program to allow students to better understand sources of intolerance and hate as they relate to marginalized and underrepresented people.
  • Create the WVU Faculty of Color Network to fully engage faculty of color, particularly new faculty, with the broader academic life of the University by improving the campus culture and climate.
