Boundless Bulls

DeWayne Anderson

DeWayne Anderson’s main objective as assistant program director in the Office of Multicultural Affairs on the USF St. Petersburg campus is to make students feel welcome. “People aren’t always going to remember what you say or what you do but, they will remember how you make them feel,” he said. Anderson incrementally discovered his passion for diversity and inclusion leadership. As a young football player, he learned about teamwork from his coaches and father. As a student, Anderson leaned on mentors and colleagues to build a community of support. He now leads a team to develop programs that help foster diversity, equity and inclusion among the university community.

Boundless Bulls is a collection of stories about what truly makes USF great –  the people. It is a focus on our community footprint, our impact and the trajectory of where we can go together.  To nominate a member of the USF community for Boundless Bulls, please fill out this submission form.

"I’m excited to get folks in the community involved with this research. To me, it’s their project at the end of the day. Some people say we’re giving a voice to the voiceless, but these members of the community already have a voice. We’re just giving them the space to speak."
