A Special Invitation to Veterans and People with Disabilities

West Virginia University and the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action within the Division of Human Resources values our diverse workforce and is proud of our inclusive community. As part of our continued commitment to recognize our diverse populations and provide services to those communities, we are inviting protected veterans and people with disabilities to self-identify. By taking the initiative to voluntarily self-identify, our University can collect accurate demographic information that will further foster an environment where all can pursue their dreams and aspirations.
