In 1989, Jim Hamilton's son and daughter asked if he would teach a directing class. The K-State philosophy professor stepped up to the challenge and created the five-week Manhattan Experimental Theater Workshop (MXTW), held every summer at the Manhattan Arts Center. Twenty-five years later, the workshop is so successful it recently became the subject of a documentary, "Dreaming in Flames: Theater." Read more.

Kansas State University established the Institute for Civic Discourse and Democracy (ICDD) in 2004 to enhance democracy through improved community deliberation. Soon after, the Center for Engagement and Community Development (CECD) was created by K-State in 2006 to connect the resources of the university to significant issues of public need facing Kansas and communities worldwide. To help sustain rural communities due to growing economic problems, CECD launched the Rural Grocery Initiative (RGI) in 2008.
