KSUnite 2022 DEIB Conference
Kansas State University established a precedence with the KSUnite movement to provide all members of the K-State community an opportunity to meaningfully engage and holistically embrace opportunities for respect, civility, and tolerance, and to feel pride in participation, as we prepare students for global citizenry.
At K-State, we can all share and learn from one another. Facilitated conversations and hard work help guide the K-State community forward. K-State students, faculty, staff and surrounding communities will join together for the sixth KSUnite Conference. KSUnite 2022 will be a three-day conference open to our colleagues and communities throughout the state of Kansas and beyond. It will be held Nov. 14-16 at the Kansas State University Student Union. Please note: Classes at K-State will be canceled from 1:30-4:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 14, for the plenary session and breakout sessions.
Kansas State University is committed to providing equal access opportunity and reasonable accommodation to campus programs and services for faculty, staff and students. If you require accommodation to view or hear a video live stream or archive, please submit a request for accommodation. Students should make their request to the Student Access Center. All others should request accommodation through Human Capital Services.
Open the Conference Handout here.
Thank you to the men of Delta Chi and SAE fraternities for helping us with the Monday afternoon sessions! We couldn't do this without your efforts!
