KSUnite — 'Our Lens, Our Focus, Our K-State'

Submitted by KSUnite Marketing and Promotions Committee

This year's KSUnite event, themed "Our Lens, Our Focus, Our K-State," will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 12, and will be run a hybrid in-person/digital format because of the lingering presence of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Live portions of the event will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and include a welcome session, plenary speakers and breakout sessions. Different from previous year's events, there is no scheduled Unity Walk and classes are not being canceled. Instead, individuals are encouraged to find a spot at the K-State Student Union to view the welcome session and plenary speakers and then progress to breakout sessions as it works for their schedule.
