Submitted by Bryan Samuel

Students, faculty and staff are invited to submit proposals for 45-minute breakout session presentations that will be offered the morning of Nov. 6 in connection with the third KSUnite. The deadline to submit proposals is Friday, May 24. Proposals should address one or more of the categories below. Sessions in each category can be open to student, faculty, staff or all audiences. Sessions will be in the K-State Student Union.


Sessions that focus on interests, backgrounds and associational opportunities of all members of the campus to prepare participants for enhancing their awareness and understanding of issues along the diversity continuum. These sessions will demonstrate diversity and inclusion as a core value of K-State and emphasize expectations identified in our Principles of Community.


Sessions that present knowledge about diversity and inclusion and enriches the teaching, learning and service experience for all community members. These sessions will emphasize tenets of the Tilford Competencies as a component of the university's mission to ensure that all graduates have the knowledge and skills necessary to be global citizens.


Sessions that focus on creating and sustaining an inclusive environment wherein students, faculty and staff understand the value and demonstrate the importance of diversity and inclusion through action and behaviors. These sessions will provide participants with takeaways and action items that can assist in realizing the institutional conditions aspired to in our Principles of Community and personal attributes identified in the Tilford Competencies.
