Ed Experience dates set for spring semester


Recruitment coordinator Danae Daellenbach is ready to welcome future Wildcats to campus.

The College of Education has finalized its list of Ed Experience dates for prospective students and now we need you – our amazing alumni – to help identify students who would be great teachers.

“Teachers are the best ambassadors for the profession,” said David Griffin, assistant dean and director of the Center for Student Success. “Please share this information with students you believe would be great teachers and encourage them to make a trip to Manhattan because campus experiences can make all of the difference in the world.”

Prospective students will spend the day with a College of Education ambassador, attend classes, meet with an academic advisor and visit with Danae Daellenbach, the college’s recruitment coordinator. “We are very excited to welcome prospective students to K-State,” she said.

The dates for the Spring 2018 semester are:

Feb. 26-March 2

March 6-8

March 13-15

March 26-29

April 3-6

April 10-12

‘A Long Road’ documentary, lesson plans available on MEAC website


Five K-Staters share personal accounts of their experiences in this moving documentary.

The College of Education has produced a new documentary that is also a tremendous resource for classrooms across the country as it includes lesson plans aligned with the common core curriculum.

“A Long Road: 150 Years of Collective Experience from Five African-American K-State Alumni” tells the stories of these highly successful professionals who have had distinguished careers at K-State. They are: Kathleen Greene, David L. Griffin, Sr., Juanita McGowan, Charles I. Rankin and Veryl Switzer.

Tonnie Martinez, assistant professor of education, and former College of Education faculty member Albert Bimper developed the project.

“It was our team’s privilege to be selected for a Michael C. Tilford Faculty Incentive Grant,” Martinez said. “Viewer response affirms that our distinguished alumni have a relevant and inspirational message for all audiences.”

The documentary and lesson plans are free can be found on the website for the Midwest Equity Assistance Center at www.meac.org.

Griffin ushers in changes as Center director

The professionals in the CSPS office.

The Center for Student and Professional Services, or CSPS, the all-inclusive information hub for College of Education students, has undergone a series of improvements since Assistant Dean David Griffin was named director this summer.

When you visit the refurbished office, you will be greeted by both new and familiar faces. Even more exciting is the news that the Center plans to launch an internal e-Newsletter for faculty very soon.
