  • Gee calls on higher ed to create necessary dialogues, asks WVU community to lean on Mountaineer values in wake of Floyd, ‘countless’ other Black deaths

    Wednesday, June 3, 2020

    The West Virginia University Center for Excellence in Disabilities (WVU CED) strives to effectively represent the diverse network that is the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD). In doing so, our mission is to serve people with disabilities and their families regardless of age, gender, color, sexual orientation, or any other factor that may be used as a divisive tool in our society. The direct services, research, training, and information we share are designed to create equity and improved health for all. What we stand for strongly opposes recent police brutality, killings and other violence across our country. We recognize this is not a reflection of all and we accept the opportunity to contribute to the change that must take place in all levels of our society.
