Embedded in the Western Kentucky University mission is a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our mission to prepare students of all backgrounds to be productive, engaged, and socially responsible citizen-leaders of a global society starts with each faculty and staff member involved in preparing students. The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion website provides general information for individuals interested in attending WKU, information for current students desiring to learn and engage at WKU, information for upcoming and current alumni, and information for our WKU faculty and staff. This detailed information will direct you to campus offices, faculty, staff, and student organizations ready to assist you.
