Alumni Fellows

The K-State Alumni Fellows Program, sponsored by the Deans Council, the President's Office and the Alumni Association, recognizes alumni who have distinguished themselves in their careers. 

Since 1983, the program has brought successful alumni back to campus to meet with students and faculty and share their expertise in the classroom and at informal settings.

Fellows are chosen by each college to return as distinguished guests and as mentors, friends and counselors. They are honored in recognition of the ultimate measure of a university – not curricula, facilities or programs, but the quality of its alumni.

For more information about the Alumni Fellows Program, contact Andrea Bryant Gladin at 800-600-ALUM (2586) or email her at AGladin@K-State.com.
