Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs

13th Annual Midwest HALO Encuentro
K-State Student Union  
Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2019 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.

The Hispanic American Leadership Organization at Kansas State University would like to invite you to this unique event. The goal of the Encuentro is to provide an environment where students can learn about the unexpected challenges they may encounter during their collegiate years, and how others before have overcome those challenges and attained their educational goals. It is also an educational tool that assists in Latino student identity development.

Keynote speaker

This year our keynote speaker is Jaime Carias
