Diversity, Not Just a Word – It’s Our Priority
Choosing a college is likely the biggest and most important project in your life right now. You may feel that your entire future, not to mention four years of your life and a lot of money, are riding on this decision. Everyone from your parents to your siblings, mentors, teachers and friends have an opinion about where you should go and what constitutes a good school. Finding the right school for you is important, because you want to fit in, flourish, and be successful. The college location, its reputation, financial assistance, scholarships, and campus life are factors to think about when choosing your school. May we suggest another critical factor for you to consider when looking at UW-Stevens Point-campus diversity.
Below is a list of private, national and community diversity and multicultural scholarships, as well as scholarships offered by UW-Stevens Point. We encourage you to explore scholarship opportunities for which you're eligible.
It Begins With You!
We know that our students learn a great deal from each other inside and outside the classroom. Learning and living among students from different backgrounds, with a wide variety of academic interests, will benefit you, other students and our campus. At UW-Stevens Point, we have not only embraced diversity, we have put our words into action. Over the last decade, we've more than doubled our diversity student population by attracting students with a wide range of ethnic and cultural backgrounds, religions, points of view, skills and experiences. We believe in college, as in life, we learn the most from the people who are least like ourselves. As a UW-Stevens Point student, you are going to have this kind of experience.
You Are Not Alone!
We can’t wait for you to join us! There are many ways to get involved, celebrate diversity, and meet new people. Here you will find a wide range of clubs and organizations that provide academic, cultural, and personal support. In addition to co-curricular and social opportunities, the Diversity and College Access Office is an important place where students can find academic assistance, involvement opportunities, community support, and more.
