Teaching students to turn risk into opportunities
Providing opportunities for K-State students and helping them develop into tomorrow’s leaders are goals of Greg and Mamie Case, Winnetka, Illinois. They've donated more than $1 million to K-State’s Center for Risk Management Education and Research to create the Greg and Mamie Case Integrated Risk Management Endowment.

The center engages students, both undergraduate and graduate, and industry partners in innovative education and research, advancing their risk management skills and knowledge. The center is a joint effort of faculty and students from K-State’s colleges of Agriculture, Business Administration, Engineering, and Arts and Sciences. Additional partners from across campus also participate.

"By supporting the Center for Risk Management Education and Research, we can create opportunities for interested students to learn that risk is opportunity, that businesses can achieve their desire for predictability by understanding risk and how it will impact their organizations," said Greg Case, K-State alumnus and president and CEO of Aon, a global risk management and HR solutions firm.  

"Gaining this perspective through the center will allow those students to understand that the challenges associated with managing risk are enormous, but the organizations that confront risk head-on will stand to make tremendous gains for their stakeholders."

ENG Phase IV expansion
The College of Engineering will soon have a building as innovative as the minds of its students and faculty.

Opening in the fall of 2015, the Phase IV expansion will enhance the educational experience for current and future students.

The building will create a flexible environment to inspire and support interdisciplinary learning and collaboration. It will provide work spaces for engineering organizations to meet and collaborate, creating a more inclusive environment and encouraging students to get involved in the activities the college offers in preparing students for their future careers in engineering.

Learn more about the Phase IV expansion and how it will benefit students, faculty and K-State.
