The College of Arts and Sciences Student Ambassadors will host the Student Diversity Summit from 3-5 p.m. on Friday, April 12, in Town Hall at the Leadership Studies Building and via Zoom. This come-and-go event is free, and the public is invited.

The summit will feature three student presentations. The presenters will tell personal stories that give insight into the lived experiences of K-State's diverse student body, highlighting their challenges and triumphs. They aim to show how diversity has evolved and can thrive within the community.

The presenters will be:

  • Max Barbe, freshman in geographic information science and technology.
  • Renae Sturgeon, sophomore in English.
  • Alondra Alvarez, freshman in political science.

"This enlightening experience will offer attendees the opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations about diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging," said Joseph Pondillo, senior in political science and social transformation studies, and diversity co-chair for the ambassadors.

Questions may be directed to Kimathi Choma, assistant dean for diversity, recruitment and retention, kchoma@k-state.edu.
