Why I Give:


Leadership for Life: 20th Anniversary Engagement Initiative

Since 1997, we have engaged with students in ways that help develop and cultivate leadership capacity. All who have been involved with us throughout our first 20 years have helped make up our foundation, and in this celebratory year, we’re looking to connect with more alumni, supporters, and friends to engage them in supporting the work of the Staley School. Your gift—in any amount—will be put to use helping us build the capacity of future generations to meet tomorrow’s challenges.

Commitment From our First Class:

The first class of Leadership Studies graduates have played a huge role in the growth and development of the Staley School. Their engagement in the early years of the program helped shape the academic experience and the culture of Leadership Studies at K-State. Now, through their continued support, they are helping lead the effort to build the story of the next 20 years and beyond!

Members of the first class will be on campus during the week leading up to our 20th Anniversary Celebration and Reunion Weekend to serve as Leaders-in-Residence. They will engage with our students and faculty both inside and outside the classroom to share their stories and begin powerful conversations about their leadership throughout the state of Kansas, across the United States, and around the world.

Their leadership will continue to provide a strong example for our students—as well as our alumni and friends—on what it means to foster Leadership for Life!
