Telling Our Story: Value, impact and the importance of land-grant universities

In this talk, we will explore the challenges and opportunities of affirming our land-grant mission in the context of an uncertain post-pandemic world.

Rosowsky will be joined by panelists Michael Dowd, student body past president; Laurel Littrell, director of assessment at K-State Libraries and faculty senate president; Ernie Minton, dean of the College of Agriculture and director of K-State Research and Extension; and Be Stoney, interim chief diversity and inclusion officer.

As vice president for research, Rosowsky oversees all research and economic development activities at K-State, providing leadership and expertise in fostering a campus environment that promotes collaborative, interdisciplinary efforts and produces high-quality research and scholarly work. Rosowsky has written extensively about the pandemic's impact on public universities and the opportunities for institutions to emerge from the pandemic stronger, more resilient, more accessible and more sustainable. His writing has appeared in Forbes, The Chronicle for Higher Education, Inside Higher Ed, University Business, Trusteeship Magazine and several other major publications.

A reception will immediately follow the lecture.

Space is limited.
