I recently returned from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where I completed a program review, presented two lectures and promoted K-State graduate education at the Universiti Putra Malaysia. One of the most exciting and rewarding parts of my trip was getting to network with K-State alumni.

Alumni shared stories about the time when they were in graduate school and spoke fondly about their undergraduate adviser or major professors. They enjoyed seeing photos of the new buildings on campus. Continue reading “Dean’s Message”→

In an effort to boost recruitment initiatives and help prospective and incoming graduate students have a successful and easy transition to K-State, the Graduate School has selected 16 graduate students to serve as official Graduate Student Ambassadors for the 2016-17 academic year.

Communicating an 80,000 word thesis in three minutes sounds like a challenge, but Kansas State University graduate students proved they were up to the task in the university’s first Three Minute Thesis competition.
