The K-State Student Union invites all interested students, faculty or staff on any Kansas State University campus to participate for free in the virtual Association of College Unions International (ACUI) National Conference March 3-5. The conference, hosted online, brings together community builders and campus programmers from across the country.
Typical educational session topics include student leadership, campus activities, space design and management, team development, social justice, and other topics related to building and maintaining diverse, active communities on campus.
"The Union is excited to share this national conference with the K-State campus community," said Corey Williamson, executive director of the Union. "We hope that graduate assistants, new student life professionals and those with a passion for serving students are able to take advantage of this valuable professional development resource at no cost their department. The entire K-State Family can tune into educational sessions and bring new ideas to their units."
Instead of paying per attendee, the Union has covered this year's unlimited institutional registration, resulting in a free opportunity for the entire campus.
Interested individuals must still register for the conference using an official K-State email address by February 23. Information about the conference, including relevant dates and educational content, can be found at the ACUI national conference website. With sessions relevant to faculty, professionals and students, this is an excellent educational opportunity for even those who work beyond the Union and student activities, and all are invited to take part!
Founded in 1914, ACUI is the professional home to thousands of campus community builders around the world. Primarily focused on the work of those within the college unions and student activities field, the Association strives to provide an inclusive, welcoming community for all those who choose to belong.
