What Matters to Me and Why

Guest lecturer Carol Shanklin, dean of the graduate school and professor of dietetics, will present what matters to her and why. Dean Shanklin's presentation is about how mentoring influenced many of her personal and professional decisions and thus who she is today. She will also discuss why she values the privilege of mentoring students, junior faculty and colleagues.

Lunch is provided. RSVPs are due by March 23.

This informal lunchtime series builds and strengthens bonds between people who teach, learn, and work together daily, and to foster understanding of how each of us embraces our values and K-State’s Principles of Community.

What Matters to Me and Why encourages reflection within the K-State community on matters of personal values, beliefs, and motivations in order to better understand the lives and inspirations of those who serve and shape the University. The presenter is encouraged to share a story of their personal journey - how they have chosen to live their life, the core values they have adopted, the personal choices they have made and lessons they have learned.
