Apply now for sponsorship funds from the Dow Center for Multicultural and Community Studies

Submitted by Sarah McGreer Hoyt

K-State Libraries' Dow Center for Multicultural and Community Studies offers sponsorship funding to campus and community programs that engage with themes of multiculturalism and diversity. Funds for 2018-19 academic year events are available by request through a form at the Dow Center website.

Curious about the types of programs the Dow Center supports? The following are samples of past sponsored events:

  • Artist Damon Davis gave an invited talk at the Beach Museum of Art about work he made during the demonstrations in Ferguson, Missouri, following the police shooting of Michael Brown.
  • Jonathan Paul Higgins gave a lecture about racial and multicultural inclusiveness in the LGBT community at the invitation of the LGBT Resource Center.
  • As part of the community's annual celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the First Congregational United Church of Christ hosted a Roots of Justice Anti-Racism Analysis Training.
  • Dr. Renaisa S. Anthony, a physician and health equity scholar, presented a lecture, "A Dialogue on Health Disparities and Actions to Achieve Health Equity" for National Public Health Week.
  • The American ethnic studies department hosted filmmaker Quyên Nguyen-Le, who screened two works, "Queer Vietnameseness" and "Nước."

Sponsorship funds, which are used at the discretion of the dean of the K-State Libraries, are just one way the Dow Center helps deliver relevant programs and services that advance meaningful understanding and dialog regarding multiculturalism and diversity.
