Robinson Family Multicultural Leadership Award

The Robinson Family Multicultural Leadership Awards recognize four outstanding, multicultural graduating students who are leaving a legacy of enhancing multicultural engagement at Kansas State University through their leadership. The award winners are recognized at the Robinson Family Multicultural Leadership Awards Luncheon.

The Robinson’s are a family of K-Staters who came from humble beginnings. Exposure to K-State has encouraged and inspired generations of their family. They have committed to core values that include leadership, giving back and leaving a legacy. The Robinson Family Multicultural Leadership Awards represent the beginning of a wonderful journey as students graduate and become alumni.
