K-State Lecture Series

K-State Libraries Lecture Series

The Libraries Lecture Series seeks to engage the campus and Manhattan community with the Libraries through discussions on topics relevant to learning and research.

Each event features a campus or community leader and offers the opportunity for attendees to ask questions and engage with others. Some sessions offer panel discussions and interactions.

2023 Lecture Series

Alfonso Clavijo, director of the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility, will present "Enhancing NBAF's Safety Culture Through High Reliability Organization Principles" at the second annual K-State Libraries Lecture Series at 3:30 p.m. Monday, May 1, in the Hemisphere Room on the fifth floor of Hale Library.

In this talk, Clavijo will share the importance of NBAF becoming a high-reliability organization, what that means and why these principles are integral to ensure safe and responsible science.

The lecture is open to the public, and a reception will immediately follow. Space is limited and online registration is required.
