We're All in this Together

Our diversity, equity, and inclusion vision in CPASS is to develop and maintain an inclusive environment that celebrates the strengths, experiences and backgrounds of all students and employees. We are committed to recruiting, developing, and advancing a diverse College community. We will do this by providing equitable access to learning opportunities and professional experiences that prepare all members of the College to be agents of change regarding issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Working together we will make CPASS, WVU, and West Virginia better and healthier places to play, learn, work, grow, and live.
