UW-Stevens Point Director of Diversity and College Access Dr. Dinga encourages students to celebrate diversity and inclusion.

In 2002, Dr. Dinga moved to Stevens Point from Cameroon, West Africa. Since then, he’s made it his mission to ensure students, faculty, and staff at UWSP understand the importance of having diversity on its campus.

“Being open and willing to constantly share my story,” Dinga explained, “I think personally, I get inspired by other people and I hope my story too can inspire some students.”

As an alumnus, he understands the challenges students of color or students of the LGBTQ+ community can face because of their differences.
