2025plan

Inspired by Gov. Mark Parkinson's challenge for a Kansas university to be among the top 50 in the nation, K-State President Kirk Schulz and Provost and Senior Vice President April Mason have proposed an ambitious plan to take the university to greater heights within the next 15 years.

"The ranking and prestige of Kansas State University is of critical importance to our graduates as they seek jobs, our students as they apply to top tier graduate programs, our doctoral students as they look for career opportunities in the research world, and our faculty members as they compete with better funded and ranked universities on a daily basis," Schulz said. "People want to invest in a winner -- and the different constituent groups who support K-State want to invest in a university they perceive as moving upward to new heights of achievement."
