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 mean for individuals to learn
independent of time or place and to earn competency-based degrees and other credentials.”
