Diversity Officer - Vincent Flewellen: At Webster University we know that the decision to change employment is an important one. We also know that the decision to join a staff is made easier when you have a sense that you will feel welcomed, seen and valued at your new workplace.

[Footage of Flewellen speaks while looking toward camera in his office with bright orange wall and artwork hanging behind him.]

[Showcase of many student photos, students with professors, administration at podiums, international campus sightseeing adventures, graduation images and classroom activity examples.] 

Flewellen: Well, Webster is a workplace where everyone is asked to truly come as they are, to come as their most full and authentic self and we invite you to be a part.

Flewellen: Founded in 1915 by women for women for years before women, albeit white women, could even vote.

Flewellen: In fact, DEI was in the DNA of Webster in the 1930s when we enrolled Japanese American women during the war.

Flewellen: That was true in 1915. It was true during World War II. It was true prior to the civil rights movement, and it remains true today.

Flewellen: In keeping with our storied history and mission, Webster University proudly serves students in numerous metropolitan and military locations across the United States and locations around the world.
