The Division of Student Life announces new program for students: K-State 360

K-State 360

Dear campus community,

In the summer of 2014, a committee in the Division of Student Life was formed to create a co-curricular program with the ultimate goal of helping students stand out to future employers and graduate and professional schools. After researching on peer institutions that have similar programs and best practices in co-curricular resumes, we are pleased to announce the launch of K-State 360, a program that's designed to provide undergraduate students with a well-rounded university experience.

We know that out-of-classroom activities are often as important as in-class experiences for students' career development. K-State 360 helps navigate this involvement while tracking progress and transforming students into well-rounded individuals. Activities are placed into a series of categories, guiding students toward an inclusive K-State experience and a developed skill set that will give students an edge. Once students complete all the category requirements, students will gain the K-State 360 designation to share with potential employers and graduate schools.

Thanks to the development by Jan Elsasser and her technology and information services team, students will easily be able to use GPS location on their smartphones, swipe their student IDs at select locations, or self-report their involvement that will be recorded on their My360 dashboard. At the end of their undergraduate experience, students will be provided a co-curricular resume generated by K-State 360 to assist them in their post-graduate endeavors.

Students can now sign up for K-State 360 and begin tracking their experiences on the first day of the fall semester, Aug. 21. The K-State 360 development team will be reaching out to faculty and staff over the next month with more information on how to register their events and activities on students' My360 dashboard.

To request a K-State 360 representative visit your team, or for more information on the K-State 360 program, please contact kstate360@k-state.edu or visit 360.k-state.edu.
