KAWSE Ambassadors Meeting

New/interested members are welcome! This organization is for undergrad & graduate students. Our goal is to be low-commitment while having a high impact. We meet every other Tuesday and you get to choose how much you want to be involved in our various initiatives. This group focuses on supporting girls’ interest in STEM through visits to local/middle high schools. It is also a great place to meet other women in STEM at K-State, like yourself, and participate in professional development and other volunteer outreach opportunities. To be added directly to the KAWSE Ambassadors mailing list, contact Bailey Yates at bayates@ksu.edu.
