Kansas State University will host provosts from Big 12 universities starting Sunday.
Provosts from member schools will visit Kansas State University for the first time since a conference reorganization added Texas Christian University and West Virginia University. Big 12 provosts meet at a member institution twice annually, once in the spring and once in the fall, to discuss key issues in higher education and common areas of interest.
The provosts will visit the Konza Prairie Biological Station, a tallgrass prairie ecological research site, and go on a guided tour of the prairie with faculty from the Division of Biology. A dinner and reception with Kansas State University leaders will be held later that day at the Flint Hills Discovery Center.
On Monday, provosts will tour the Grain Science and Industry Complex, home of the International Grains Program that educates foreign business leaders and government officials about U.S. grains and oilseeds.
