Strategic Diversity Plan

Human Capital Services Strategic Diversity Plans

K-State 2025

K-State's Human Capital Services advances socially just learning and working environments that foster a culture of excellence through diverse people, ideas, and perspectives.  We engage in dynamic university-partnerships designed to advance all people to be their best selves and advance all of K-State.

Truly a HCS division-wide effort, this diversity plan guides the division's staff in the pursuit of their highest aspirations toward achieving academic diversity, campus diversity, and university-wide engagement.  Throughout the implementation of this plan, HCS will continue to foster a culture of excellence via its partnerships with KSU's academic colleges and schools, other university administrative divisions and units, and individuals and organizations across the state of Kansas.

OIE's Strategic Plan & Metrics

OIE

It is the goal of HCS-Office of Institutional Equity to cultivate an inclusive campus culture that actively and intentionally engages diverse people, ideas, and perspectives to create a vibrant learning and working environment at Kansas State University. OIE will accomplish this by sustaining and advancing efforts to develop a pervasive culture of inclusion in all facets of life at Kansas State University.

By addressing concerns in a proactive way and challenging injustices, educating the community to understand the intrinsic value in developing workplace equity, and encouraging social and professional opportunities for unity and advancement, HCS-OIE can transform the campus culture into one in which all individuals draw strength from the University’s collective diversity.  This transformation fosters success and a greater sense of belonging and respect (which ultimately promotes the University's goal of attracting and retaining diverse talent as we become a Nationally Ranked Top 50 Research University).
