Wildcat Dialogues

An intercultural leadership experience

Join all new and first-year K-State students for a night of meaningful dialogue and building connections.

What you’ll do:

  • Learn how to create communities of belonging
  • Build cross-cultural relationships through meaningful dialogue
  • Engage in active listening, empathy and perspective-taking
  • Build your skillset to understand cultural differences and similarities

How you’ll use it later:

  • Recognize the ways in which your cultural and social identities make an impact on how you see and experience the world.
  • Recognize the ways in which others’ cultural and social identities differ from your own and how they see and experience the world differently, like you.
  • Demonstrate authentic curiosity and empathy when engaging in meaningful dialogues across difference.
  • Identify tangible action steps you can take to create a community of belonging for all at K-State.

Wildcat Dialogues will take place 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1. (If you need to attend a virtual session later in the week due to health concerns or scheduling conflicts, please indicate it on the RSVP form.)
