Our Commitment to Social Justice

We maintain a commitment to social justice, as the humanities play a vital role in support of human rights, civic engagement, diversity, equity and inclusion. Our studies address issues of racial justice, gender violence, environmental crises, economic inequities, and many more. But most importantly, we encourage critical analysis and dialogues to help develop empathy and compassion, both fundamental components of cultural and civic life and social resilience.

Through our events, programming, research and studies inside and outside of the classroom, we hope the WVU community contributes to broader social good.
