Kansas State University is an equal opportunity employer and actively seeks diversity among its employees.
The OAA staff consists of a Director, an Associate Director, an Assistant Director, and an Administrative Officer. The director and the associate and assistant directors serve as liaisons between the OAA and certain academic and administrative units. However, in the absence of a unit's liaison, one of the other two staff will be available. Each one can provide guidance, interpret policies and procedures, meet with search committees, collaborate with you in resolving complaints, and many other things.
