Presidential Lecture Series

To focus on the health and safety of future Wildcats, community members and the entire K-State family, we are suspending our PLS program until May 17th. We are closely monitoring the ongoing situation around Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will post any changes to our plans here as the situation requires.

About the series

Launched in 1986 by Kansas State University President Jon Wefald, the Presidential Lecture Series is a service offered by the university at no charge to high schools and community colleges.

The series makes our most stimulating faculty members available to share their expertise on a wide variety of issues.
