A free box lunch will be provided starting at 11:45 a.m., and an RSVP is requested by Feb. 27. Visit k-state.edu/leadership/events/journeys.html to read the full event description and sign up.

This informal lunchtime series supports K-State's Principles of Community by encouraging reflection on matters of personal values, beliefs and motivations to better understand the lives and inspirations of those who serve and shape the university. The event is co-sponsored by the Staley School of Leadership Studies, the College of Education and the President's Committee on Religion.
