  1. Lunch & Learn: "Immigration in Kansas Today" with Matt Sanderson, Kansas State University

    August 22, 2019, 12:00 PM @ Visitors Center Auditorium

    Since settlement in the 19th century, the story of Kansas has largely been a story of immigration. This presentation explores how immigration today compares to immigration since the 1860s, connecting the trends in the benefits and challenges that communities face when new people move in. Looking at history, how can today’s Kansas towns and neighborhoods develop socially and ecologically resilient communities? The social processes of integrating new cultures into our increasingly shared space will be examined, as well as the impact these changing demographics have on their natural environments. Presented by Matthew Sanderson, professor of sociology at Kansas State University. The Lunch & Learn series is made possible by the Eisenhower Foundation and the Jeffcoat Memorial Foundation. This program is free and open to the public. A light lunch will be provided on a first come, first served basis.
