The lecture series was created in 1979 by Vernon C. Larson, then director of international agricultural programs, and is the longest running at K-State. With six presentations per year, presented during the fall and spring semesters, the series offers an opportunity for the K-State community to hear presentations from faculty and individuals who have recently participated in an extensive overseas activity or who are involved in major international activities.

Reservations for the luncheon can be made by email to oip@k-state.edu or by phone at 532-5990 and should be made by noon of the Friday before each luncheon. You may also attend the lecture portion of this event for no cost.
