Seek magazine fall 2021 cover

How can we enhance the visitor experience at parks and protected areas while conserving their natural and cultural resources? Why is it important to analyze misinformation and disinformation? How can we find solutions to some of our biggest water problems? 

Seek out these answers in the fall 2021 issue of Kansas State University's flagship research magazine, Seek. The award-winning magazine highlights university research, scholarly and creative activity, and discovery through a print publication as well as the website k-state.edu/seek.  

The fall issue includes five feature stories: 

• "Greater spaces, better places" describes how the K-State Applied Park Science Lab is helping visitors enjoy experiences at parks and other protected areas.

• "Cause or effect" shows how researchers are analyzing misinformation and disinformation.

• "Riding the wave" explains how interdisciplinary teams are studying water to find solutions.

• "The hidden crisis" demonstrates how K-State public health programs are helping communities.

• "Breaking a bottleneck in bee research" explores how computer vision modeling is causing a buzz in entomology research. 

The magazine also shares how two university programs are leading to new corporate partnerships and shows how K-State research is leading Kansas on a path to economic prosperity

Other stories highlight undergraduate scholars, graduate scholars, faculty researchers and university distinguished professors.  

Seek is published twice a year and is a collaboration among the Office of the Vice President for Research, the Division of Communications and Marketing and other university communicators. The magazine recently received a gold 2021 Circle of Excellence award, which is a prestigious international award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, or CASE.
