The Commission for LGBTQ Equity seeks to assess and improve the climate for diversity, equity and inclusion within the WVU community by highlighting the contributions and concerns of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) students, faculty and staff. This is accomplished through review of climate, policies, programs and procedures and through the development, promotion, and advocacy of collaborative partnerships and programs with other campus and community offices and affinity groups.


The LGBTQ Commission is committed to fostering diversity and an inclusive culture at West Virginia University in which all Mountaineers are visible, safe, supported, and have equitable access to all University programs, services and policies, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
