Educational excellence

K-State has a long history in the classroom

 

Kansas State University is a national leader in the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education competition for Professor of the Year.

Three K-State professors have won the national professor of the year award in the research/ doctoral university category, more than any other research/ doctoral university. K-State is also the only research/ doctoral university in the nation to win both the national and state awards in the same year. K-State has had three national professors of the year, seven Kansas professors of the year, and one professor who twice won a silver award in the competition when it was first initiated.
