In the last 21 months as your University president, and nine months prior to that
as interim president, I have been struck, time and time again, by the can-do attitude
and shared sense of purpose of WCU’s 1,896 faculty and staff members.
WCU President Chris Fiorentino
As a first year student I was at D-CAP every day, whenever I had a free minute. I
had a place to go to study, hangout, and make friends. Cherie and the grad assistants
helped me learn time management skills, how to write a resume, and mostly with my
happiness at WCU. It was nice to have a judgment free zone.

We take our access mission quite seriously at West Chester University, in fact nearly twenty percent of our incoming students have found a home at our University through one of our access programs.
As a first-generation student myself who participated in Upward Bound in high school…
the access work of University College is particularly important to me.
WCU Senior Vice Provost and Dean of the School of Interdisciplinary and Graduate Studies, Dr. Jeff Osgood
Many of us – employees as well as students -- set goals at the start of a new academic
year. I encourage you to set goals as it relates to diversity and inclusion, getting
out of your comfort zone and taking advantage of the many opportunities available
to you, inside and outside of our classrooms, residence halls and office spaces.
WCU Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer Dr. Tracey Ray
