Diversity week is officially underway at WVU. A week long celebration of all of our differences kicked off on Monday afternoon.
Together students and faculty shouted, "There's a place for you at WVU." Each of the 40 events planned will help to promote acceptance of everyone.
School officials are saying it's important they celebrate diversity because Mountaineers need to lead by example.
WVU Chief Diversity Officer David Fryson said, "We're hoping the type of things we do here will spur the rest of the state to see the value of diversity. So often when you think about diversity you think about our differences, but diversity is the collection of similarities and differences."
Diversity week will wrap up on Friday afternoon.
