Information, inspiration and purple pride were everywhere at the 2013 annual meeting of the K-State Board of Trustees in September. More than 321 trustees traveled from 17 states to make the meeting a great success.
This year’s annual meeting was a busy day packed with information and excitement for K-State’s future. We hope you will make plans to join us for next year’s meeting, scheduled for September 19, 2014. Here’s a look back at the event in pictures:

Fall brings lots of excitement to K-State, including the kickoff of the All-University Campaign for K-State. The annual campaign allows faculty and staff on all three campuses to support the areas of the university they care about most. Since 2007, the number of faculty and staff who make gifts to K-State annually has increased by 146 percent. In 2012 alone, 42 percent of faculty and staff — or 2,100 employees — made gifts to the university totaling more than $1.3 million.
