K-State is offering assistance to students who have been displaced by recent flooding in the Manhattan area.
"The university is aware that some students have been permanently and unexpectedly displaced from their places of residence. Some have lost most, if not all, personal belongings, while others are unable to return to their residence until an inspection for safety and insurance purposes has been conducted," said Heather Reed, director of student life. "The K-State family understands the serious and disruptive impact this has on those who have been displaced."
Reed said the campus and community are ready to help. All staff members from the office of student life are available to help faculty and staff with referrals or consultations regarding any other academic or non-academic needs of displaced students, Reed said.
"We know our faculty have many concerns for the academic and personal well-being of students, so we want to thank them for the continued care and commitment they demonstrate and for giving serious consideration to providing displaced students with reasonable academic accommodations on a case-by-case basis," Reed said.
