Upcoming Events

Staley School Ambassadors annual service event, Big Help in the Little Apple

bighelpEvent information

On April 8th, 2017 from 11am – 2pm the Staley School of Leadership Studies Ambassadors will be hosting  their 2nd annual university-wide service event, Big Help in the Little Apple. It is the hope that through this event we will accomplish not only service to the neighboring Manhattan community, but also promote cooperation and cohesiveness among all our students on campus as well. This event will focus on service, yet the underlying theme will be to expose individuals to different groups they may have never interacted with before. If you’re interested in volunteering, please fill out our volunteer form here. If you have any questions please feel free to contact our advisor Kaitlin Long at kaitlinl@ksu.edu.

Volunteer information

There will be multiple volunteer locations and service projects. Group arrangements will be formed prior to arrival, and all volunteers will receive an email a week before the event indicating their ambassador site leader, volunteer location, and a brief description of the service project. More specific details about the project will be given to volunteers upon arrival. Additionally, volunteers will be required to sign a waiver on the day of the event. Snacks and water will be provided. 

Our Mission

Recruit. Promote. Educate.


The mission of the Staley School Ambassadors is to recruit students to the Staley School of Leadership Studies, promote the mission and goals of the Staley School, and educate campus and community members about leadership.

The group is comprised of around 30 students enrolled in the leadership studies minor and promotes the school to current and prospective students at events such as K-State Celebrates, Junior & Senior Days, and the Academic Majors and Minors Fair. Staley School Ambassadors help faculty and staff share the benefits of leadership studies with the community.  In addition to discussing how the leadership studies minor can benefit students, the Staley School Ambassadors publicize upcoming programs and special events. The Staley School Ambassadors also provide continual feedback to faculty and staff and represent student interests and concerns.
