Recent national events and #BlackAtKState bring into clear focus how much work needs to be done to address racial and social injustice issues at our university. Developing meaningful, measurable action plans with concrete steps will propel us forward together.
To help us create a healthier and safer university, we've partnered with the JED Foundation, which operates the JED Campus initiative to assess current university programs and look for way to enhance a school's mental health and suicide prevention systems, programs and policies.
The initiative is a multiyear strategic collaborative that will create positive, lasting and systemic change in K-State's community. A task force consisting of faculty, staff and students will work with our JED Foundation contact in helping us move this campus wide initiative forward.
