EXPERT ON HELPING STUDENTS SUCCEED IN THE FIRST YEAR OF COLLEGE WILL BE SPEAKER FOR CHESTER E. PETERS LECTURE AT K-STATE APRIL 16

MANHATTAN -- An expert on how colleges and universities can make a student's first year a success will present Kansas State University's 2010 Chester E. Peters Lecture on Student Development.

Mary Stuart Hunter will discuss "Moving Beyond Osmosis: Institutional Responsibilities for First-Year Student Success" at 10 a.m. Friday, April 16, in Forum Hall at the K-State Student Union. The lecture is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the office of the dean of the K-State College of Education.

Hunter is associate vice president and executive director for University 101 programs and the National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition at the University of South Carolina. She has taught University 101, South Carolina's first-year seminar, since 1978. She also facilitates many of the resource center's conferences on first-year seminar instructor training and development and peer leader programs, which are conducted across the nation and internationally.

Following her lecture, Hunter will meet with K-State's first-year seminar faculty and staff at a special reception.
