Diversity Programs Office Update

Submitted by Phil LeBlanc

The Diversity Programs Office (DPO) in the College of Agriculture is dedicated to providing and promoting leadership opportunities, understanding, goodwill, diversity and friendship among students, staff and faculty in the College of Agriculture and K-State Research and Extension. Read below to find out more about the activities and events that help us implement the office’s mission:

• Tiffany Carter, Ph.D. Graduate Student in the Department of Agronomy, has been appointed as the National Society of Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Related Sciences (MANRRS) Region IV Graduate Vice President. She successfully completed the interview process with the National Society of MANRRS’s administration and will be participating in the national officer training later this month. Along with the undergraduate Region IV Vice President, Tiffany will represent our region of five states and twelve chapters. This is an honor to our MANRRS chapter, college, and university. Please join me as we congratulate her on this accomplishment.

• The K-State MANRRS chapter is holding their annual study hall before finals this week. The study hall was held in 137 Waters Hall yesterday from 6-9 p.m. and again tonight. It will be held in Room 301 in Hale Library tomorrow night. The office would like to thank Cargill and CHS for sponsoring this event.
