Arts & Sciences students host diversity summit April 1

Students in the College of Arts & Sciences are hosting a Student Diversity Summit on Friday, April 1 from 3-5 p.m. in the Leadership Studies Building Town Hall.

“We’re excited about this event, which is a combined effort of many students and faculty from across campus,” said Jack Nolte, junior studying microbiology and one of the event organizers. “I hope students from all colleges at K-State come out to this important event.”

The student-directed summit will be a two-hour event for students to learn about the diversity groups on campus, issues regarding diversity, and meet with student organizations, support program coordinators, faculty, and staff.

The Student Diversity Summit will include a panel of students from the newly established Voices of Discovery Program at 3 p.m. and guest speakers from across campus scheduled to begin at 4 p.m.

“We are very fortunate to have student leaders at K-State who not only value diversity but who are willing to use their time to promote it to other students through events such as the Student Diversity Summit," said Kimathi Choma, College of Arts & Sciences Assistant Dean of Diversity, Recruitment, and Retention.
