Kansas State University Lavender Alumni
Kansas State Lavender Alumni is an informal organization for lesbian, gay, and bisexual and allied alumni of Kansas State University. In order to recognize the true scope of the organization’s mission the official name is the Kansas State University Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Allied Lavender Alumni Association (LavAlum).
A LavAlum is a recognized representative of K-State’s LGBT alumni and works hard to represent the interests and concerns of those who are a part of the organization, both as alumni and as a constituency with a continuing role in University life. It is the intent of this organization to regularly plan events with other diversity oriented organizations and current student organizations to work together on issues that affect our diverse campus communities. We seek to continue building K-State as an ever more diverse and affirming institution.
LavAlum takes a special interest in supporting current K-State students, both undergraduate and graduate. As part of a holistic approach to involvement with our campus we seek to provide mentor opportunities for current students and programming that includes regular educational seminars and panel discussions to engage the students and community. We seek to continue to have a continued presence at Homecoming festivities in October and at the All University Open House Weekend in April.
We are actively trying to reach more of our membership. We invite alumni to contact us by email or telephone.
