image-up-arrowimage-down-arrowAffirmative Action / Equal Opportunity
The history of West Virginia State University (WVSU) is closely entwined with assisting individuals to receive equity through educational and cultural programs and activities. That focus has propelled the University to be recognized as "a living laboratory of human relations."
WVSU developed its first Affirmative Action Plan in 1978 and that original document has been revised many times since then. You may peruse the most recent plan on this website.

image-up-arrowimage-down-arrowSTATEMENT of NON-DISCRIMINATION
West Virginia State University is committed to providing equal opportunities to all qualified prospective and current members of the West Virginia State University community - students, faculty, staff, and partners.  Our institution complies with all Federal and State laws in our educational programs, employment, financial, and business affairs practices without regard to race, color, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, national origin, religion, creed, genetic information & testing, family & medical leave, pregnancy, and Veterans and individuals with disabilities.

We encourage all qualified women, minorities, protected Veterans and individuals with disabilities to apply for employment at West Virginia State University.

Age Discrimination
Age discrimination involves treating someone (an applicant or employee) less favorably because of his or her age. Individuals are age 40 or older. It is not illegal to favor an older worker over a younger one, even if both workers are age 40 or older. Discrimination can occur when both over 40.
Occurs with unfavorably treatment of a qualified employee or applicant (current or past history). Requires an employer to provide reasonable accommodation to an employee or job applicant with a bon a fide disability, unless doing so would cause significant difficulty or expense for the employer ("undue hardship").
Equal Pay
The Equal Pay Act requires that men and women in the same workplace be given equal pay for equal work. The jobs need not be identical, but they must be substantially equal. Job content (not job titles) determines whether jobs are equal.
Genetic Information
Title II of GINA prohibits the use of genetic information in making employment decisions, restricts employers and other entities covered by Title II (employment agencies, labor organizations and joint labor-management training and apprenticeship programs - referred to as "covered entities") from requesting, requiring or purchasing genetic information, and strictly limits the disclosure of genetic information.
Harassment is a form of employment discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, (ADEA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, (ADA). Harassment is unwelcome conduct that is based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. Harassment becomes unlawful where enduring the offensive conduct becomes a condition of continued employment, or the conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create a work environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive.
National Origin Discrimination
National origin discrimination involves treating people (applicants or employees) unfavorably because they are from a particular country or part of the world, because of ethnicity or accent, or because they appear to be of a certain ethnic background (even if they are not). National origin discrimination also can involve treating people unfavorably because they are married to (or associated with) a person of a certain national origin or because of their connection with an ethnic organization or group.
Pregnancy Discrimination
Pregnancy discrimination involves treating a woman (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because of pregnancy, childbirth, or a medical condition related to pregnancy or childbirth. The Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) forbids discrimination based on pregnancy when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, such as leave and health insurance, and any other term or condition of employment.
Race/Color Discrimination
Race discrimination involves treating someone (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because he/she is of a certain race or because of personal characteristics associated with race (such as hair texture, skin color, or certain facial features). Color discrimination involves treating someone unfavorably because of skin color complexion.

Religion Discrimination
Religious discrimination involves treating a person (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because of his or her religious beliefs. The law protects not only people who belong to traditional, organized religions, such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism, but also others who have sincerely held religious, ethical or moral beliefs.
Sex-Based Discrimination
Sex discrimination involves treating someone (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because of that person's sex. Sex discrimination also can involve treating someone less favorably because of his or her connection with an organization or group that is generally associated with people of a certain sex.
