Student Diversity Summit

The Student Diversity Summit focuses on understanding cultural competencies at K-State and why this is vital to creating an inclusive environment. It usually features student speakers and an interactive panel discussion. It is open to all students, faculty, staff and members of the community. Join this inspiring event and be part of the conversation as we celebrate diversity and explore the many facets of inclusion and belonging in our community.

Our upcoming summit will be Friday, April 12 from 3-5 p.m. in the Leadership Studies Building Town Hall room.

“This enlightening experience will offer attendees the opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations about diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging,” said Joseph Pondillo, senior in political science and social transformation studies, and Diversity Co-Chair for the ambassadors.

Three current K-State students will present, sharing personal stories that give insight into the lived experiences of K-State’s diverse student body, highlighting their challenges and triumphs. The students are:

  • Max Barbe, freshman in geographic information science and technology
  • Renae Sturgeon, sophomore in English
