This informal lunchtime series is designed to build and strengthen bonds between people who teach, learn, and work together daily, and to foster understanding of how each of us embraces our values and K-State’s Principles of Community.
The purpose of What Matters to Me and Why is to encourage reflection within the K-State community on matters of personal values, beliefs, and motivations in order to better understand the lives and inspirations of those who serve and shape the University. The presenter is encouraged to share a story of their personal journey - how they have chosen to live their life, the core values they have adopted, the personal choices they have made and lessons they have learned.

Personal Responsibility for Social Justice
What individual, personal responsibility do members of a community have to promote social justice? When social injustice is rooted in history and the past behavior of others, why should I as an individual have any responsibility to do anything about it? What roles do universities have in creating a just society?
