Office of Diversity

The Office of Diversity is committed to promoting diversity in every sector of Kansas State University. The Office of Diversity provides vision and leadership in diversifying all university functions as well as students, faculty, staff and the curriculum.

The Office of Diversity reports to the provost and senior vice president and takes both a targeted and a broad view in defining diversity. In its core activities, the Office of Diversity targets the issues of historically under-represented American minorities and women. The long and grave histories of racism and discrimination affecting these groups, the continuing present-day inequities, the demands of employers for graduates from these groups and the accelerating pace of demographic changes provide compelling legal, moral and self-interested rationales for sustaining efforts aimed at these groups.

At the same time, the Office of Diversity appreciates the broadest spectrum of human diversity and the need for the university to be fully inclusive. The overall quality of education an institution provides depends, in part, on this broad-scale inclusivity.


2015 Institute - Assessing Diversity Outcomes: Advancing Inclusive Excellence


The 2015 Institute for Student Learning Assessment/Diversity Summit provides an opportunity for college and university educators to share research and  assessment practice that supports understandings of diversity learning outcomes. Participants will engage in professional development and networking through poster sessions, presentations, and workshops focused on: Disciplinary diversity learning outcomes; Measurement tools for diversity outcomes; Best-practice examples of instructional/assessment strategies; and Strategies to use program-based assessment to promote institutional advances toward inclusive excellence.
