“This is another stellar class of talented and accomplished student fellows.

The new student fellows begin their program in January 2015.

By providing students and business professionals with the information and tools necessary to identify, quantify and manage risk, the center complements K-State’s strategic plan. Additionally, the center supports the greater university mission of advancing the well-being of the state of Kansas, the United States and the international community.
