Home  > CEO In The Classroom/Cooperative Education Lecture Series

The objective of the Cooperative Leader in the Classroom and Cooperative Education Lecture Series is to increase understanding of the role and nature of cooperative businesses. Each year at least one outstanding cooperative leader or educator is invited to meet with students, faculty and cooperative leaders to communicate their knowledge and views related to cooperatives. This lecture series was initiated in 1996 at the suggestion of the Kansas Farmers Union and is supported by a grant from the CHS Foundation.
