'Difference Makes Us Stronger' is theme for KSUnite, diversity and inclusion events for 2020-2021 school year

Submitted by Stefan Yates

A team of faculty, staff and students from across the K-State landscape has identified a common theme that will connect all diversity and inclusion programs and events with the signature program, KSUnite. For the 2020-2021 school year, we have selected "Difference Makes Us Stronger."

We kindly ask all units, departments and divisions that will be participating to utilize the theme. If you have any questions, please contact the chief diversity and inclusion officer, Bryan Samuel, at bsamuel1@k-state.edu
