WAUSAU – More than ever before, success in today’s diverse workforce requires sensitivity to human differences and the ability to relate to people from different cultural backgrounds.

At 10 a.m. today, Sept. 19, Wisconsin Public Radio’s “Route 51” host Shereen Siewert welcomes Dr. Sam Dinga and Marc Young, two key players at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point who are working to recruit and retain a diverse student body at area campuses. Together, they’ll discuss efforts underway to offer a multicultural experience for all UWSP students, and the impact those programs are having on today’s students.

“Route 51” is heard Thursdays at 10 a.m. on The Ideas Network stations 101.3 & 91.9/Wausau, AM 930/Auburndale-Stevens Point, 99.1/Stevens Point, 100.9/Marshfield, 90.3/Park Falls, 89.1/Adams-Wisconsin Rapids, and 89.9/Rhinelander-Eagle River. It is re-broadcast Fridays at 7 p.m. on 90.9/Wausau. Program archives are available at wpr.org/route51.
