K-State Animal Science Leadership Academy

KASLA 2022

Applications are now available for the 2022 K-State Animal Science Leadership Academy. The goal of this academy will be to further develop young leaders within the livestock industry and prepare them for a successful future in this field. In 2022 the program will offer two separate sessions to meet increased demand and serve more young people — June 22-25 and June 29-July 2.

Each four-day session will focus on increasing knowledge of Kansas’ diverse livestock industry, as well as building participant’s leadership skills. Twenty high school students will be selected to participate in each group based upon educational, community, and agricultural involvement, as reflected through an application process.

The program’s itinerary will feature interactive workshops, tours and faculty mentor time with ASI professors. Industry leaders will also join the participants frequently to share their knowledge and expertise. Throughout the week, participants will work in teams to evaluate current events within the animal science industry and educate others. This experience will culminate with a closing reception on Saturday morning. 

Participants will stay on campus in university housing with program staff. Transportation to and from the event is the responsibility of the participant, along with a $50 fee to reserve his or her space. The fee is only due upon acceptance and not at the time of application. LMIC generously provides all other sponsorships. The program will adhere to all University COVID-19 protocols at the time of the event.

Hosted by the K-State Department of Animal Sciences and Industry and sponsored by the Livestock and Meat Industry Council (LMIC) Inc, the academy’s goal is to develop young leaders within the livestock industry and prepare them for a successful future in this field.

We are excited to get back in the classroom with a new group of future industry leaders!

For questions about the academy, please contact Sharon Breiner, Director, at sbreiner@ksu.edu or 785-532-6533.
