College of Agriculture Diversity Programs Office Update

Submitted by College of Agriculture Diversity Programs Office

Welcome back to K-State! We hope that your first week has gone well and you are ready for the fall semester. This week we will be hosting our first MANRRS (Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences) General Body Meeting of the year and we invite all to attend. The venue is Waters Hall, Room 137, at 6 p.m. Refreshments will be served! This meeting will serve as an opportunity to welcome all new students and welcome back our returning students. We would also like to congratulate our 2019 MAPS (Multicultural Academic Programs Success) and KOMPASS cohorts for a job well done. The students named below successfully completed both programs that were full of learning and experiencing K-State for the future. Both programs are a partnership with Project IMPACT in the department of Diversity Multicultural Student Affairs (DMSA).
