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:

• We would like to wish all students the best of luck on their final exams this week. The K-State Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Related Sciences (MANRRS) chapter held their annual study hall last week to better prepare them for this final round of exams. The office would like to thank Cargill and CHS for sponsoring this event. 

• The K-State Alumni Association is holding an event for multicultural students graduating in May, August and December 2017 at the Multicultural Graduation Celebration on Friday, May 12. The celebration will take place at 5 p.m. in the K-State Alumni Center’s Ballroom and will feature free food, drinks and prizes. The event is free for faculty, staff, upcoming graduates, and one guest each. Additional guests will be asked to pay a $5 cash cover at the door. RSVPs are required to attend, and are due by Wednesday, May 10, at 5 p.m.

Please continue to look for more diversity news and events as we continue to advertise. We appreciate your support. For more information about upcoming events or to collaborate with the DPO, please call 785-532-5793 or contact Dr. Zelia Wiley, Interim Associate Provost of Diversity, zwiley@ksu.edu.
