West Virginia University is elevating the status of its top diversity official.
University President Gordon Gee made the announcement on the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act. He says this isn't just a title change, but a move to build on the progress made in the last five decades.
Gee says the goal is to ensure that the university is a welcoming place to learn, work and teach.
