On August 6th, Kansas State University will host several academic events in celebration of the Day of Ecuador, providing a forum for researchers, educators and students to exchange and discuss ideas and approaches about the role of education in generating human development in the new era.
These events will count with the presence and participation of Ecuadorian Ambassador to the United States, Nathalie Cely; Vice Minister María del Pilar Troya from SENESCYT, the Ecuadorian governing body of higher education; and Freddy Alvarez, general research dean of the Instituto de Altos Estudios Nacionales, will participate with university administrators as part of the program.
Panel discussions will be held throughout the day, and the event will conclude with a concert by Papaya Dada, an Ecuadorian musical group that fuses traditional sounds with funk, jazz, pop and salsa, from 5:15-7 p.m. in the Union’s Grand Ballroom.
