Diane R. Dean, associate professor for higher education administration and policy at Illinois State University, will give the 2015 Chester E. Peters Lecture in Student Development at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, April 30, in Forum Hall of the K-State Student Union.

Dean's research applies organizational theory, social psychology and policy analysis to address critical issues in college and university planning, policy and governance. Her latest book, "Generation on a Tightrope: A Portrait of Today’s College Students," co-authored with Arthur Levine, addresses today's college students, specifically the sociological changes and forces shaping their undergraduate experiences.

The lecture is free and open to all members of the K-State community and the public.
