Wildcat Dialogues, and Intercultural Learning Experience, 7-9 p.m. Monday, September 21, 2020 - A Virtual Event
Join all new and first-year K-State students for a night of meaningful dialogue and building connections.
What you’ll do:

How you’ll use it later:
- Recognize the ways in which your cultural and social identities make an impact on how you see and experience the world.
- Recognize the ways in which others’ cultural and social identities differ from your own and how they see and experience the world differently, like you.
- Demonstrate authentic curiosity and empathy when engaging in meaningful dialogues across difference.
- Identify tangible action steps you can take to create a community of belonging for all at K-State.

DMSA and the Hispanic American Leadership Organization is excited to host the 14th Annual Mid-West HALO Encuentro on Tuesday, Oct. 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the K-State Student Union and virtually, via Zoom.
Encuentro's goal each year is to provide an environment to learn about unexpected challenges during collegiate years and how other students have overcome those barriers to achieve their educational goals. It is also an educational tool that assists in Latino student identity development.
Encuentro allows students to interact with peers from other schools and provides a wide range of opportunities to learn from our K-State students, faculty and Staff.
Registration for the conference is FREE for high school and university/community college students and features the following:
- Motivational keynote speaker
- Multiple breakout sessions
- Free meals
- College student panel
- Campus tour
Due to COVID-19 there are limited spaces for in-person registration. We will only be able to take the first 100 registrants including sponsors and chaperons.
Masks will be required at all times and conference rooms are set at no more than 30% occupancy to ensure social distance guidelines are met. All other participants will receive the link to the Zoom conference meeting once they are registered by their program leaders or individually.
