During his time at Wilson, Dieudonné was responsible for the development and implementation of the college's information technology strategic plan and provided leadership on a number of key initiatives, including the adoption of a learning management system and development of distance education programs. He also served a key role in Point’s transition to several new technology platforms, including an enterprise resource planning system and advancement and payment processing software.
