Civic Luncheon Lecture

Year two of K-State Salina's popular Civic Luncheon Lecture Series will start on Feb. 13 at 12:00 p.m. in the College Conference Center and will focus on the Middle East conflict.

Dr. Ranin Kazemi will speak on the topic "What the Syrian Conflict can teach us about the Middle East." Dr Kazemi is a historian of the contemporary Middle East, modern North Africa and Iran. His specialty is in analyzing social processes and undercurrents that led to the making of economic structures, political formations, and cultural and ideological practices in Muslim societies. He has carried out research in Iranian, Turkish, British and American archives.

The Civic Luncheon series is funded by the Office of the Provost and the general public is invited. Lunch is served at the K-State College Cafe prior to the noon event, or the general public can take lunch trays into the conference room during the presentation which will end at 1:00 pm.

Campus News & Announcements

Professional Day 2014 

It's once again an example of how K-State Salina is putting a plan into action. With the assignment of constantly challenging what higher education can be, several faculty members gathered together on Monday, Jan. 13 for the 10th annual K-State Salina Professional Day. This event allows instructors from various programs to     demonstrate how their continuous research elevates students' classroom experience. From diversity in STEM courses and the life of adolescents living in foster care to how the brain receives knowledge, Professional Day not only proves our professors are following the K-State 2025 plan, but are also getting to know more about one other.

A Glance at the Upward Bound Program Fall Activities
Mrs. Booker and Ms. Wills are the newest additions to the Upward Bound Program, and they have chosen to dive in head first with daily operations of the Upward Bound Program as well as planning events for the 2013-2014 academic year. On Oct. 26, 2013, the Upward Bound Program had their New Scholar Orientation, and they hosted for nine new students. Currently, the program is serving 50 area scholars from Newton (17), Clay Center (9), Lincoln (9) and Ell-Saline (15) High School. Thus, the Upward Bound Program is so excited to have a full roster of 50 students. 

Also noteworthy, Mrs. Booker and Ms. Wills attended the Trio Mid-America Association of Educational Opportunity Program Personnel (MAEOPP) 39th Annual Professional Development Conference in Columbus, OH, on November 3-6, 2013. The conference activities ranged from concurrent sessions by Trio professionals and subject matter experts, program roundtables for best practices, and featured speakers from the Council for Opportunity in Education and the U.S. Department of Education. Mrs. Booker and Ms. Wills will apply the knowledge gained from the conference to empower their students to achieve academic success, promote active parent involvement, strengthen our involvement and collaboration in the K-State Salina community, and work toward the continued success of the Upward Bound Program. Additionally, in support of the Salina community, the Upward Bound Program students participated in the Parade of Lights on November 23, 2013.
