It will feature a keynote address by Ann Ferren, senior scholar with the Association of American Colleges and Universities, on "Investing in Quality."

The institute is open to all K-State faculty, staff, administrators and students, as well as representatives from other Kansas higher education institutions. There is no cost for participating and the institute includes a lunch buffet provided by the provost.
Please submit names and email addresses of those wishing to attend to the office of assessment at email@example.com no later than Monday, Oct. 22. The institute is open to the first 150 who preregister. For more information see a condensed Institute Program or the Institute Flyer.
