Dustdevil Diversity Spotlight Series

TAMIU values the unique life experiences, stories, thoughts and contributions of its faculty, students, staff and alumni. We may all come from different places but it is by appreciating one another and working together that we are able to promote an inclusive, diverse and equitable society. In this section, we will keep adding stories of people who help to truly make TAMIU diverse and international. If you have suggestions on a person who should be featured next, email Mika Akikuni at makikuni@tamiu.edu
