KSU, Eisenhower Presidential Library Renew Partnership

John AndersonFebruary 8, 2018

After five years of fruitful partnership, two Kansas organizations hope to create even more of a good thing. In January 2013, Kansas State University and the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum and Boyhood Home in Abilene entered a partnership to give researchers greater access to both institutions’ scholarly assets.  Now, the two organizations have recommitted to the original agreement signed by U.S. Archivist David S. Ferriero and former Kansas State University President Kirk Schulz. The partnership was designed to create student internships, public lectures and the joint development of classroom curriculum.  Long-term projects flourished under the agreement. For example, the university’s Institute for Civic Discourse and Democracy and the Eisenhower staff collaborated on a number of well-attended public discussion forums. The topics included gun control, economy and health care concerns. Multiple internships allowed history students to assist with archival and museum projects, while several students from the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications gained media relations experience.  Some new partnerships and unforeseen opportunities have developed, too.
