On Aug. 6, the university celebrated “Day of Ecuador,” and the College of Education played a key role in the reason for the event.
In 2012, K-State became the lead institution to train 3,000 Ecuadorian English as a second language teachers. The “Day of Ecuador” served as an amazing forum to learn more about Ecuador and why the nation is making heavy human capital and monetary investments in education.
Debbie Mercer, dean of the College of Education, extended her sincere thanks to Nathalie Cely, Ecuadorian ambassador, and María del Pilar Troya, vice minister of Secretaría Nacional de Educación Superior, Ciencia y Tecnología, or SENESCYT, for traveling to Manhattan for the celebration and for their presentations.
The event was sponsored by the Embassy of Ecuador, the K-State Office of the Provost, the K-State College of Education, the K-State Office of International Programs, and the K-State Global Campus.
