WVU Artists Aligned
Let's Go... Make the Change!
WVU Artists Aligned (WAA) is a collective of former and current students of the West Virginia University College of Creative Arts.
While our society was dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, a second, but just as serious pandemic also surfaced. Our nation was forced to face the harsh reality that we were long overdue for change and growth when it came to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The theater industry, in particular, needed to confront the normalized inequities that had been (and continue to be) ingrained in the system for too long. So, in collective action with universities and alumni groups from across the nation, WAA was established to call out racial injustice in higher education and to outline positive and actionable steps for more diversity, equity, and inclusion in every aspect of schooling.
To raise awareness of the DEI work already in progress all around the country and to build a strong, unified community of alumni that strives to make every mountaineer feel included and supported.
