WGU is committed to promoting inclusion, respect for differences, equal opportunity, and diversity in our institution. We believe in the power of education and the value of expanding access and opportunity to all individuals. Our goal is to create an environment where students, faculty, and staff all feel comfortable and safe to be their best selves while having opportunities for educational development.
Equity has been in WGU’s DNA since the beginning, and we are passionate about the recruitment and retention of diversity in students and employees. In fact, the concept of equity was written into WGU’s original mission statement: “to improve quality and expand access to post-secondary educational opportunities by providing a means for individuals to learn independent of time or place and to earn competency-based degrees and other credentials.”
WGU has been named a Top Education Employer by Diversity Jobs for the university's consistent outreach and dedication to reaching candidates from all diversity groups, so the most qualified candidates can truly rise to the top.
