ANNOUNCEMENTS

Please complete the online K-State Engagement Benchmarking Tool (EBT) for your engaged work during the past calendar year. The survey will be open until February 1. Participation in the EBT replaces our department report on engagement and supports your annual evaluation, frees up committee time and provides a larger audience for our work. The survey takes approximately 15 minutes. Our department will obtain a copy of LARCP reporting. If you collaborated with another faculty member, please coordinate who is reporting what so that you maximize your reporting opportunities. You may preview the survey  here   before completing it at:
